Think about what happens to the gas (air) inside the syringe when the temperature decreases. As the gas cools it will occupy a smaller volume and thus the syringe plunger will move DOWN the barrel.

The syringe piston will slide inwards towards the water as the cold temperature causes the air inside the syringe to contract, creating a pressure difference that forces the piston to move.

The gas will contract and the piston should move closer to the base.

Why you cannot squeeze a sealed syringe full of water?

because all the space in the syringe is taken up by water. If you squeeze the syringe it will break.


Why you cant squeeze a sealed plastic syringe that is completely full of water?

We can't squeeze a sealed plastic syringe full f water because all the space in the syringe has already been occupied by water and as a result, there is no space left to squeeze. If we attempt to do so , then the syringe will burst or crack.


Why does the water in a sealed syringe evaporate when put in hot water?

Heating favors evaporation.

Is nitro piston less maintenance than the spring?

It's about the same. Nitro will just perform a little better. No spring to wear out. The Nitro piston guns have a sealed strut in place of a spring, there's no maintenance required.


Why does it make sense that if you squeeze the air in a sealed syringe that the pressure will go up?

If you squash something in a sealed container then you are reducing the volume available for it to fit into and the result is that it pushes back (the pressure goes up). It is like forcing air into a bicycle tyre with a pump.

Why can't you squeeze a seal plastic syringe?

A sealed plastic syringe is designed to withstand pressure and not deform when squeezed. The materials used in its construction are chosen to be rigid and not easily compressible, which prevents the syringe from collapsing when squeezed.


When you put air into a sealed syringe and then place it into boiling water why does it expand?

When you heat a sealed syringe with air inside, the molecules of the air gain kinetic energy and move faster, causing them to collide with the walls of the syringe more frequently and with greater force. This increased pressure inside the syringe leads to expansion as the gas molecules push against the walls of the syringe.


How can a dead weight tester used to calibrate a gauge pressure?

Place the gauge inside a sealed piston. Place the weight on top of the piston and read the pressure from the gauge. The force exerted by the weight multiplied by the area of the piston will give you the actual pressure exerted on the gauge. Using SI units. A 5 kg weight placed on a 0.25 meter diameter piston will create a pressure of around 1 pascal (Nm^2). 5N*Pi*0.25m^2.


What is a crank and slider used for?

This is a device that is commonly used on very large displacement engines and large steam engines. The crankshaft connecting rod is attached at the slider end to a piston shaped object. This object is the attached bay another beam or rod to the piston the does the work. In a steam engine this allows the upper connecting rod to be sealed so the piston can make power going in both directions. If you look at video of steam trains you can see this in action In large diesel engines it reduces wear on and failures of the piston.


What is function of a piston in a petrol engine?

Answer The piston is a key engine part, which is used to compress gases withing the combustion chamber or cylinder of an engine. The piston is sealed with a piston ring, often constructed under freezing temperatures, to allow expansion and therefore complete sealing, to seal the chamber to prevent leaks, or dangerous gases escaping. As the piston moves downwards, a valve opens to allow fuel into the chamber, this fuel is then compressed, combusted and expelled. All of which is transferred through the cam or prop shaft, through a differential and gear box, into the axle and ultimately onto the road via the tire.
