Compute the mass of the confined air in the first and second inner cylinder using the formula m=pV0, where P is the density of the air and V0 is the initial volume of the air in the inner cylinder. Based on your results of the calculations analyze why you got different values for the average of the product pV for the two different cylinders?
Examine the slopes of the straight lines obtained from the graphs of p versus 1/V. Why are the slopes different?
A cylindrical tank has tight-fitting piston that allows the volume of the taxk to change. The tank contains 0.5 m^3 of air at a pressure of 2*10^5 Pa. The piston is slowly pushed in until the pressure of the air is increased to 2.5*10^5 Pa. If the temperature remains constant, what is the final value of the volume?
