A piston-cylinder arrangement shown in the figure has a stop located 2 m above the base. The cylinder initially contains air at 140 kPa and 350 °C and the piston is resting in equilibrium at a position which is 1 m above the stops. The system is now cooled to the ambient temperature of 25 °C. Consider air to be an ideal gas with a value of gas constant $R = 0.287$ kJ/(kg·K).

The absolute value of specific work done during the process is ________ kJ/kg (rounded off to 1 decimal place)
