    Computational physics

    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"...

    Kinetic theory

    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)...

    Kinetic theory of gases

    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
