I have read that no work is done during free expansion and temperature of an ideal gas undergoing free expansion doesn't change.
Let us assume an ideal system of piston and gas which has vacuum around it. The gas will expand but we say there is no work done by the gas. Why so ? Gas applies a pressure(& hence a force) on the piston and the piston gets displaced. So acc to F.s = work , there is work done by the gas !
