Problem finding Th
Hi guys,
I am having some trouble with the calculation of Th in a potato cannon lab. I have found most of the information needed to get the temp, though I don't know how to set it up.
Following is the list of variables I have found:
Volume  1.39605L
Pressure  141415
Change in volume  1.39605L
Force  1385.86
Area  .0098m^2
Measurements:
Cylinder 1  .771m
Cylinder 2  .655m
radius 1  .025m
radius 2  .0565m
height of potato when shot up  57.9514m
potato mass  1.755kg
time  4.94 s
Velocity  48.412 m/s
The type of gas that is put into the cannon is butane.
Can you give me some pointers on what I need to do to get closer to the goal or at least the variables that are left to find.
Thanks!
