Hello all,
I am currently doing an engineering degree. I am interested in doing physics related computing. Can anyone tell me what exactly is simulation? I dont have a thorough background in physics but I am willing to learn. Is that okay to work in the field of "computational physics"...
n=2; v2=2*v1;T=400 K; R=8.32
W=2.303nRTlog(v2/v1)
= 2.303*2*8.32*400*log(2v1/v1)
= 2.303*2*8.32*400*log(2)
= 2.303*2*8.32*400*0.3010
= 4613.959
we generally use logarithms and i dont know wat is "ln"
Homework Statement
A certain mass of a diatomic gas (gamma=1.4) occupies a volume of 100 cm^3 at a pressure of 75 cm of Hg. It is compreseed adiabatically until the pressure increases to 80 cm of Hg. Calculate the workdone in the process.
Homework Equations
W=1/(gamma -1)* (p1v1-p2v2)...
Homework Statement
Two moles of an ideal gas expand to double the initial volume at a constant temperature of 400 K. Calculate the work done by the process.
Homework Equations
W=2.303nRTlog(v2/v1)
The Attempt at a Solution
i tried the formula and got 4613.959 J but the answer is 554.6 J
initial kinetic energy of cart1 =108(k1)
initial kinetic energy of cart2=4(k2)
final kinetic energy of cart1=48(k3)
final kinetic energy of cart2=64(k4)
so, k1+k2=k3+k4=112
collsion
A 6.0 kg cart moving at 6.0 m/s collides with a 2.0 kg cart moving at 2.0 m/s in the same direction on the same track. The collision is cushioned by a perfectly elastic bumper attached to one of the carts. What are the velocities of the carts after the collision? What was the maximum...
