A metal tank with volume 3.10 L will burst if the absolute pressure of the gas it contains exceeds 100 atm. (a) If 11.0 mol of an ideal gas is put into the tank at 23.0o C, to what temperature can the gas be warmed before the tank ruptures? Ignore the thermal expansion of the tank. (b) Based on your answer to part (a), is it reasonable to ignore the thermal expansion of the tank? Explain.

Solution 15E We have equation a)pv = RT p1v = RT 1 RT p = 1 1 V 11×8.314×(23+273.15) p1= 3 3.1×10 6 = 8.737 × 10 pa p = 100 atm = 1.013 × 10 pa 7 2 p nR T = V = constant So, p1 = p2 T 1...
