Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given Information (Part a)

Equation:

Step 2: Explanation (Part a)

Find the ratio between the final and initial volumes in an adiabatic compression of a diatomic gas if the final pressure is ten times that of the initial one.

Step 3: Final Answer (Part a)

Therefore, find the ratio between the final and initial volumes in an adiabatic compression of a diatomic gas if the final pressure is ten times that of the initial one.

Step 4: Given Information (Part b)

Equation:

Step 5: Explanation (Part b)

(b) Rearranging, we can give the following expression:

Canceling the units of pressure and putting both sides on the root, we get:

Step 6: Final Answer (Part b)

The final solution of the problem is
