Problem 11.4

A 10.0-ft3 compressed-air tank is being filled. Before the filling begins, the tank is open to the atmosphere. The reading on a Bourdon gauge mounted on the tank increases linearly from an initial value of 0.0 to 100 psi after 15 seconds. The temperature is constant at nOF, and atmospheric pressure is 1 atm. (a) Calculate the rate h(lb-mole/s) at which air is being added to the tank, assuming ideal gas behavior. (Suggestion: Start by calculating how much is in the tank at t = 0.) (b) Let N(t) equal the number of lb-moles of air in the tank at any time. Write a differential balance on the air in the tank in terms of N and provide an initial condition. (c) Integrate the balance to obtain an expression for N(t). Check your solution two ways. (d) Estimate the number of lb-moles of oxygen in the tank after two minutes.

Gasoline into carbon dioxide) ○ Physical property= used to describe the original composition of a substance (ex. Gasoline is clear
