A frictionless gas-filled cylinder is fitted with a movable piston, as the drawing below shows.

The block resting on the top of the piston determines the constant pressure that the gas has. The height h is 0.112 m when the temperature is 273 K and increases as the temperature increases. What is the value of h when the temperature reaches 330 K?

Movable piston


Expert Answer

Step 1

Assume that the gas inside the cylinder is ideal gas. The complete process takes place at constant pressure.

Write ideal gas equation at constant pressure.

Step 2

Using above equation, the relation between volume of the gas at two different temperatures is given below.

Step 3

The gas is enclosed in a cylinder. The volumes of the...
