Water with detergent dissolved in it has small angles of contact (θ). This is because for a small θ, there is a fast capillary rise of the detergent in the cloth.

This is an adiabatic process. Hence, change in heat is zero. ∴ ∆Q = 0 ∆W = –22.3 J (Since the work is done on the system) From the first law of thermodynamics, we have:
∆Q = ∆U + ∆W
Where, ∆U = Change in the internal energy of the gas ∴ ∆U = ∆Q – ∆W = – (– 22.3 J)
