A gas expands against a variable external pressure given by p = 10/V atm, where V is the volume at each stage of expansion. in expanding from 10 L to 100 L, the gas undergoes a change in internal energy ΔU = 418 J. How much heat has been absorbed?

Joshi sir comment

process is isothermal because pV = 10 = nRT

so work done W = 2.303nRTlog(V2/V1)

so Q = Δ+ W

This question is wrong. How does an isothermal process have change in INTERNAL energy ?
