Pressure-Volume Work Exercises Illustrating the First and Second Laws.
Hoover, William G.; Moran, Bill
American Journal of Physics, v47 n10 p851-56 Oct 1979
Presented are two problem exercises involving rapid compression and expansion of ideal gases which illustrate the first and second laws of thermodynamics. The first problem involves the conversion of gravitational energy into heat through mechanical work. The second involves the mutual interaction of two gases through an adiabatic piston. (BT)
