Website Detail Page

written by Kyle Forinash
This web page contains a simulation of the volume and temperature of gas in a piston as it oscillates.  Temperature and volume are graphed as the volume of the piston expands and contracts.  Related context-rich questions ask students to consider changes in thermal energy and how temperature, volume, and number of particles are related for closed containers.  See Related items on this page for a link to the author's full index of simulations on Thermodynamics.

This page is part of a collection of Java applets with tutorial questions developed for students of undergraduate physics.
