In terms of physics, why does this happen? 3) What happens to the temperature of the gas as the piston moves? 4) Neglect gravity. Does the piston want to fall? What must happen for the piston to move? 5) Imagine you heated the gas. a) How would the motion of the atom change? b) If the piston is locked in place, what happens to the pressure of the gas? Why? c) If the piston is free to move, what will it do? Why? d) Can heat do work? Explain....
