The combustion reaction of gasoline vapor in an automobile cylinder accelerates the piston at 2024.0 cm/s2. The piston has a mass of 500.0 g and a diameter of 5.50 cm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the pressure in Pascals exerted on the piston by the expanding gases in the cylinder.

Remember from Newton's Law in Physics that force = mass times acceleration.
