Problem 68P

PROBLEM 68P

How many moles of gas must be forced into a 4.8-L tire to give it a gauge pressure of 32.4 psi at 25 °C? The gauge pressure is relative to atmospheric pressure. Assume that atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psi so that the total pressure in the tire is 47.1 psi.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 68P

Here, we are going to calculate the number of moles of required gas.

Step 1:

From ideal gas equation, we have,

pV = nRT        ----(1)

Where, p = pressure

V = volume of the gas

n =  number of moles of the gas

R =  universal gas constant and its value is 0.0821 L atm K-1 mol-1

T =  temperature
