In Problems 74 through 76 you are given the equation used to solve a problem. For each of these, you are to

a. Write a realistic problem for which this is the correct equation.

b. Finish the solution of the problem.

76.

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.

b. The solution of the problem is

Equation:

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.

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.

Equation:

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

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

The final solution of the problem is
