consider a gas contained within a piston-cylinder assembly. Assume that the piston is at x=0 initially, at which the spring exerts no force on the piston. The cylinder is then heated, transferring energy to the gas. The gas expands until the piston hit the stops at x=.05m. At that point, the heat source is removed. Assume a linear spring with k = 10000N/m. Neglect friction between the piston and the wall. Let g = 9.81m/s2. Determine P1 and the work done
