Work is positive and is done to the system. B. Work is positive and is done by the system. C. Work is negative and is done to the system. D. Work is negative and is done by the system.

When a gas expands against a pressure, then the system is doing work on the surroundings. I think you should take a look at the first law of thermodynamics to get a better understanding because this can be quite a tricky subject!
Okay, so which one do you think the answer is?
Well „ when work is done on a system, the internal energy is increased! Compressing a gas inside a thermally insulated container increases the internal energy of the gas.

let me review over the answers this is very tedious haha
I don't want to give you the wrong answer, let me review over my chem notes
I think it's either A or B. @JFraser What do you think?
\[W_{sys} = -P*\Delta V\]
work doen \(by\) a system is energy \(lost\) by the system to the surroundings as work
I would honestly say it's D but I'm not too sure. It is work done to the system, but the energy is lost to the system
