In summary: I'm done.In summary, you must apply a force on one of the pistons in order to determine the movement of the other pistons. If the areas of the other pistons are less than the area of the target piston, the sum of the areas must equal the number of pistons multiplied by the force applied.

Yes, this belongs in the homework section. Show your attempt.

it does not depend on the area. Every piston will be moved by an equal distance. Thats my attempt.

everybody knows volume is conserved. so u mean that increase in volume of every piston is same? in which case, the distance can be determined.

This is identical to filling cylindrical glasses of water.

If you start with a glass that is 10cm in diameter, and it is filled with 1L of water, the height of the water will reach X.

If you pour that entire 1L of water (i.e. volume does not change) into another glass of 5cm diameter, what level will the water reach and how do you calculate that?

I'm not sure how that helps or hinders the problem at-hand. It just seems to kind of restate it.batballbat said:

Did you read my previous post? Do you understand the correlation between the areas and the volume displacements of the pistons?

we get, for directed distance

$A_1$ $d_1$ + $A_2$ $d_2$ + ... = 0

And also the sum of the work done is also 0.

Then?

forget it

The volume of a piston can be calculated by multiplying the cross-sectional area of the piston by its length or stroke. This can be represented by the formula V = A x L, where V is the volume, A is the cross-sectional area, and L is the length or stroke of the piston.

The equation for calculating the movement of a piston in a container is given by the ideal gas law, PV = nRT. This equation relates the pressure (P), volume (V), number of moles (n), gas constant (R), and temperature (T) of a gas. By rearranging this equation, we can solve for the volume of the piston at any given pressure and temperature.

The shape of the container can affect the movement of the piston by changing the pressure and temperature of the gas inside. For example, a container with a smaller volume will have a higher pressure and temperature, causing the piston to move further compared to a container with a larger volume.

No, it is not possible to calculate the movement of a piston without knowing the pressure and temperature. These variables are essential in the ideal gas law equation and are needed to solve for the volume of the piston.

The movement of a piston has many practical applications, such as in engines and compressors. In an engine, the movement of the piston helps convert the energy from fuel combustion into mechanical energy, which powers the vehicle. In a compressor, the movement of the piston helps compress gas or air for various industrial and household purposes.
