Unformatted text preview: position. Here , w = weight of piston A = its area and g is the force of gravity.) (d) Thermostatic bath constant temperature T . Frictionless piston constant pressure (see part c above). (e) Since pressure difference induces a mass flow, pressure equilibrates rapidly. Temperature equilibration, which is a result of heat conduction, occurs much more slowly. Therefore, if valve between tanks is opened for only a short time and then shut, the pressure in the two tanks will be the same, but not the temperatures....
