Problem 5.2

The accompanying photo shows a pipevine swallowtail caterpillar climbing up a twig. (a) As the caterpillar climbs, its potential energy is increasing. What source of energy has been used to effect this change in potential energy? (b)If the caterpillar is the system, can you predict the sign of q as the caterpillar climbs? (c) Does the caterpillar do work in climbing the twig? Explain. (d) Does the amount of work done in climbing a 12-inch section of the twig depend on the speed of the caterpillars climb? (e) Does the change in potential energy depend on the caterpillars speed of climb? [Section 5.1]

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Experiment 2: Pressure v. Volume For this experiment, we manipulated the volume of a gas by adding 10 mL of water to 150 mL of propane gas in a closed Erlenmeyer flask. This in turn would cause the pressure to change. Because of this, the volume of the gas is the independent variable and the pressure is the dependent variable. To measure the pressure, we had to attach a pressure...
