A gas of mass m is enclosed in a cylinder of cross-section A by means of a frictionless piston. The gas occupies a length l in the equilibrium position and is at pressure P . (a) If the piston is slightly depressed, show that it will execute SHM. (b) Find the period of oscillations (assume isothermal conditions).
