I am confused on the steps.

A sample of flammable liquid is placed into an enclosed cylinder which is then fitted with a movable piston. Initially the cylinder contains a volume of 8.20 L. The sample is ignited producing gas and releasing 427.8 J of energy. To what volume will the cylinder expand to if it must expand against a pressure of 826.1 mmHg. Assume all the energy released is converted to work used to push the piston? 760 mmHg = 1 atm

101.3 J = 1 L atm
