Work is completed as the steam expands, Chemical Engineering

Steam at 400C, 100 bar in an insulated cylinder is rapidly decompressed to 10 bar, by unlocking the piston and permitting the gas to expand, with a constant external pressure of 10 bar applied to the piston. Find the final temperature T2, and the entropy change  S.

To solve the problem, ask yourself the following questions:

1) How much work is completed as the steam expands?
2) What does energy conservation tell you in this situation?
