Work In Thermodynamic Process

A piston is placed inside a cylindrical container, which has adiabatic walls. Initially, the piston divides the container into two equal parts, with volumes VV each, both containing an ideal gas GG at a pressure PP. Then the piston is moved very slowly by an external force FextF_{ext} till the volume on one side of the piston becomes thrice that on the other side.

Let the work done by FextF_{ext} in doing so be WW. W=kPVW=kPV

If the heat capacity ratio of GG is 53\dfrac{5}{3}, then find kk.

Note : Take the piston to be insulating.
