*p*, initial velocity

*v0*and initial stagnation pressure = 0.5

*p{v0}^2*being fired into the gas chamber with a final gas pressure given by Pg =

*n*k

*T*, for

*n*being the final number density before (at max pressure of gas) and

*T*the corresponding temperature of the gas.

Is it true that the initial stagnation pressure and final gas pressure can be related, as well as the final gas energy and initial projectile kinetic energy? Or mathematically are the following statements true?

0.5

*p{v0}^2 =*

*n*k*T (Statement 1)*

and

0.5mand

0.5m

*{v0}^2 = NkT*12ρpvp02=nkBTf and12mpvp02=NkBTf For

*m*being the mass of the projectile and

*N*being the number of particles in the gas. I have attached a diagram of the intended thought experiment below:
