Consider a mixture of air and gasoline vapor in a cylinder with a piston. The original volume is 40. cm^3. If the combustion of this mixture releases 950. J of energy, to what volume will the gas expand against a constant pressure of 650. torr if all the energy of combustion is converted into work to push back the piston.
