using volume in calculations

Postby Emily Vainberg 1D » Sun Jan 26, 2020 1:00 pm

so for basic calculations of work, we need to use the volume. If the word problem refers to a piston, are we assuming the shape is a cylinder? For 4A.3 a bike pump was a cylinder, is a piston also a cylinder?

Yes, I believe you would assume it is a cylinder shape.
