Unformatted text preview: repeat the above steps (with the appropriate masses). This gives, for the final temperature: T3 = T2 = T1 T2 = (m2/m1 ) RT1 + T1 T2 = m2g h1 + T1 (T2 ­T1) in its energy (since there’s no heat). and 1 The process of adding a weight is irreversible. Consider now a different process. Suppose we drop grains of sand, one at a time, onto the piston until their total mass becomes m2 ­m1, and then pick them up, one at a time until all th...
