Question: 20 pts imagine that you can compress a piston that...

Question details

(20 pts) Imagine that you can compress a piston that is full of an ideal gas quickly or slowly a. First, sketch a plot of what P vs V should look like for both a slow and a very fast compression. (Rough sketch by hand is fine). (10 pts) Graphically (using plot or plots shown in (a)), find the work required to compress the piston under both fast and slow compressions. (5 pts) b. c. Does slow or fast compression require more work? (5 pts)
