"Lock the piston head in place, and hold the container above a very hot flame."Hint A.1Understand the graph
A common way of denoting temperature on a pV graph is by including curves representing constant temperature, curves onwhich the product of pressure and volume are constant. These are called isotherms (from the Greek iso, equal, and thermeheat), and three isotherms are indicated on the graph. Of the three isotherms, which one designates the largest temperature,, , or ,?ANSWER:MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View...16 of 183/30/2010 9:50 AM
Hint A.2Find the change in volumeWith the piston head locked in place, will the volume of the gas increase, decrease, or stay the same when the piston isplaced above the flame?
Starting from equilibrium at point 0, what point on the pV diagram will describe the ideal gas after the following process?"Immerse the container into a large water bath at the same temperature, and very slowly push the piston head further into thecontainer."Hint B.1Find the change in volumeIf the piston head is pushed further into the container, will the volume of the gas increase, decrease, or stay the same?
Hint B.2Find the change in temperatureIf the piston head is pushed into the container very slowly, and the container remains in contact with the large water bath,will the temperature of the gas in the container increase, decrease, or stay the same?
