Answer to Question #3849 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for mia
An engine cylinder has a cross-sectional area of 0.010 m. How much work can be done by a gas
in the cylinder if the gas exerts a constant pressure of 7.5 × 105 Pa on the piston and moves the
piston a distance of 0.040 m?
Let S be the area of a cross-section of the cylinder, p - pressure of the gas, d = 0.04 m. The total work can be calculated as: A = F*d.
