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 Summary

The solution clearly explains the problem and works it to a solution.

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 ...
