During one cycle it can be moved from room temperature 20°C air into ice water and then again removed. At the start of the cycle, the cylinder is in room temperature air, the volume is 1 litre, the pressure is 1 atm and the temperature is 20°C. The piston then compresses the gas isothermally to 0.25 litre. (a) How much heat is rejected during this process? Then with the piston stationary, the cylinder is placed in the ice water and the gas cools until it is in equilibrium. (b) How much heat is rejected during this process? The piston then expands the volume isothermally to its original volume of 1 litre. (c) How much heat is absorbed during this process? The cylinder is then removed from the ice water, placed in room temperature air and the gas heats to 20°C with the piston stationary. (cl) Show that the net heat exchanged during the two isochoric (constant volume) processes is zero. Sketch a PV-diagram.

A certain car consists of a 1200 kg body resting on its suspension. The 80 kg driver drives the car over a bumpy road with the bumps equally spaced 5m apart. He ﬁnds that the car shakes with maximum amplitude when his speed is 18km/ h. (a) What is the spring constant k of the suspension? After having come to rest at a gas station, the driver jumps out and observes that the car performs damped harmonic motion with period 1.058. (b) Find the damping force constant I).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
