A gas cylinder with a movable piston that is filled with argon gas experiences a drop in temperature from 56.0 ˚C to 14.2 ˚C and the piston’s leaky seal loses 0.0048 mols of its initial 0.0132 mols before getting plugged. All of this transpires under a constant pressure of 1.024 atm. The initial volume of the cylinder was 13.0 L. How many calories were transferred through work? The total energy change for this process was 0.5983 kJ. How many joules of energy were transferred thermally?
