• Physics: A cylindrical tank has a tight-fitting?

    A cylindrical tank has a tight-fitting piston that allows the volume of the tank to change. The tank contains 0.5m^3 of air pressure at a pressure of 2 x 10^3 Pa. The piston is slowly pushed in until the pressure of the air is increased to 2.5 x 10^5 Pa. If the temperature remains constant, what is the final value of the volume? any help would... show more

  • Acceleration of a typical car?

    (a) Use your own knowledge (or that of a helpful friend) to estimate how long it takes a typical car to accelerate from zero to 60 mph. Then use that estimate to calculate the acceleration (in ft/s^2 and in m/s^2) of an ordinary car. (b) how far (in feet and meters) does the car travel while it accelerates, assuming that the acceleration is uniform?
