Unformatted text preview: correct. This means that my measurements were precise and my calculations supported the already given value. The suggested question number three ask if the cylinder could absorb more heat than the work performed on it, the answer is no even if the room temperature is higher than the cylinder. The extra heat from the room temperature also is work it just won’t be accounted for in the calculations which could give these results. We also cannot determine the amount of mechanical energy that can possibly be produced from just our calculated value of J. There are many more variable that will affect this result so one constant will not come close to calculating an accurate answer....
