## Homework Statement

A spaceship that is cylindrical of area A and Length L decelerates at a constant rate a. The air treated. What is the difference in pressure due to the motion from the front to the back of the ship. The acceleration is parallel to L and air was in thermal equilibrium.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I believe intuitively there should be a factor [tex] e^{E/kT}[/tex] where [tex]E=W=Fx=max[/tex]. I think I might need to calculate the partition function but it might not be necessary like when calculating [tex]V_{rms}[/tex] in passive circuit.
