# Thermodynamics: Adiabatic process, P-V graph, final P and T

Not what you're looking for?

Air containing gasoline vapor is admitted into the cylinder of an internal combustion engine at 1.0 atm pressure and 30 degrees C. The piston very rapidly compresses the gas, which you may pretend is all air, from 500 cc to 50 cc; a compression ratio of 10. Find the final T and P of the gas. The gas gets hot, but why (was it heated)? Show the compression on a P-V diagram put in some numbers and label the axes. How much W is done during the compression ?

##### Solution Summary

Work done, final pressure and temperature is calculated when the gas is compressed. P-V graph is plotted.
