STEM Lessons for College Students

18.50 .. In an evacuated enclosure a vertical cylindrical tank of diameter D is sealed by a 3.00-kg circular disk that can move up and down without friction. Beneath the disk is a quantity of ideal gas at temperature T in the cylinder (Fig. P18.50). Initially the disk is at rest at a distance of h = 4.00 m above the bottom of the tank. When a lead brick of mass 9.00 kg is gently placed on the disk the disk moves downward. If the temperature of the gas is kept constant and no gas escapes from the tank what distance above the bottom of the tank is the disk when it again comes to rest?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
