The drawing shows a cylinder fitted with a piston that has a mass m1 of 0.550 kg and a radius of 2.50 10-2
m. The top of the piston is open to the atmosphere. The pressure
beneath the piston is maintained at a reduced (but constant) value by
means of the pump. As shown, a rope of negligible mass is attached to
the piston and passes over two massless pulleys. The other end of the
rope is attached to a block that has a mass of m2 = 9.50
kg. The block falls from rest down through a distance of 1.25 m in 3.30
s. Ignoring friction, find the absolute pressure beneath the piston. Pa
