    A frictionless gas-filled cylinder is fitted with a movable piston. The block resting on the top of the piston determines the constant pressure that the gas has. The height h is 0.120 m when the temperature is 273K and increases as the temperature increases. What is the value of h when the temperature reaches 318K?

    Solution Preview

    Since the pressure is constant, this is an isobaric process.

    Volume (V)/Temperature (T) is Constant

    In the first Case:
    Height is 0.120m
    Temperature is 273K
    Volume of a ...
