Question: an ideal gas of oxygen molecules each having 3 degrees...

Question details

An ideal gas of oxygen molecules (each having 3 degrees of freedom) is in a cylinder with a piston at one end. The gas is compressed to one-third its original volume while energy is simultaneously added to the gas (by both compression and heating) so that the temperature (in kelvin) increases by a factor of 5. By what factor do the following change (a) pressure, (b) root-mean-square molecule speed, and (c) the number of impacts per second by molecules on 1 cm2 of wall area?
