Engineering Piston Question?

Asked by jdstevens (4 points ) July 29th, 2009

I have a gas spring rod. One side of the piston is pressurized with nitrogen gas while the other side is air at atmospheric pressure. If you apply a constant axial force, how do you find the time it takes to move the piston a given amount in the direction that compresses the nitrogen. I am really looking for the formula to use to calculate this.
