work done

A piston–cylinder device contains products of combustion from the combustion of a hydrocarbon fuel with air. The combustion process results in a mixture that has the composition on a volume basis as follows: 4.89 percent carbon dioxide, 6.50 percent water vapor, 12.20 percent oxygen, and 76.41 percent nitrogen. This mixture is initially at 1800 K and 1 MPa and expands in an adiabatic, reversible process to 200 kPa. Determine the work done on the piston by the gas, in kJ/kg of mixture. Treat the water vapor as an ideal gas.
