Problem 2PE

Problem        2PE

A fuel is burned in a cylinder equipped with a piston. The initial volume of the cylinder is 0.250 L, and the final volume is 0.980 L. If the piston expands against a constant pressure of 1.35 atm, how much work (in J) is done? (1 L-atm = 101.3 J)

Calculate the work, in J, if the volume of a system contracts from 1.55 to 0.85 L at a constant pressure of 0.985 atm.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 2PEA fuel is burned in a cylinder equipped with a piston. The initial volume of the cylinder is 0.250 L,and the final volume is 0.980 L. If the piston expands against a constant pressure of 1.35 atm,how much work (in J) is done (1 L-atm = 101.3 J)Calculate the work, in J, if the volume of a system contracts from 1.55 to 0.85 L at a constantpressure of 0.985 atm. Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 Work done during compression or expansion of gases is called pressure-volume work.The magnitude of the pressure-volume work at constant pressure is as below: w = PVWhere, P is pressure and change in volume is V = V final Vinitial
