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"...
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.
W=1/(gamma -1)* (p1v1-p2v2)...
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.

i tried the formula and got 4613.959 J but the answer is 554.6 J
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...
