Steam expands in a cylinder with a sliding piston in a steam engine?

The resisting pressure, Pext, is
85714 Pascals, the volume changes from 195.0 L to 82.0 L, and 3500 J of energy is lost to the surroundings as heat. Calculate the change in energy of the steam in Joules.

The equation is w = ?Pext ?V

I need help with this thanks in advance.

Is the motion of the piston in a one-cylinder steam engine simple harmonic?

Why???
what does it mean to follow a sine wave form?
so if velocity is increasing, so is the acceleration. and vice versa?
