Problem 126P

PROBLEM 126P

Olympic cyclists fill their tires with helium to make them lighter. Calculate the mass of air in an air-filled tire and the mass of helium in a helium-filled tire. What is the mass difference between the two? Assume that the volume of the tire is 855 mL, that it is filled with a total pressure of 125 psi, and that the temperature is 25 °C. Also, assume an average molar mass for air of 28.8 g/mol.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

RESPIRATORY PHYSIOLOGY  Example exam question: You’re driving your horse to a race, and there is a hole in the trailer near the exhaust pipe. By the time you get to the horse race, you open the door and what happens (There will be a wreck and the horse will bleed out, this will involve the cardiovascular system) o The horse falls out dead.  The major function of the respiratory system is the exchange of gases. o Two major gases we exchange are carbon dioxide and oxygen. o We are dependent upon the concentration of the gases in the air we breathe (the atmosphere.) If the concentration changes, that disrupts the respiratory system.  Going up really high, there’s not much oxygen. We ar
