Asked Jan 12, 2020

The pressure of a gas contained in a cylinder with a movable piston is 750 Pa. The area of the piston is 1.5 m2. Calculate the force that is exerted on the piston.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given :

Pressure= 750 pa

Area = 1.5 m2

Step 2

Formula we use :

Pressure = Force/ area

Therefore, Force= pressure x area
