Problem 52PE

(a) At what temperature does water boil at an altitude of 1500 m (about 5000 ft) on a day when atmospheric pressure is 8.59×104 N/m2 ? (b) What about at an altitude of 3000 m (about 10,000 ft) when atmospheric pressure is 7.00×104 N/m2 ?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 52PE

a.)According to the table of saturation vapor density of water, the temperature at which water boils at an altitude of 1500 m on a day when atmospheric pressure is

8.59x104 N/m2 is 95oC

b.)According to the table of saturation vapor density of water, the temperature at which water boils at an altitude of 3000 m on a day when atmospheric pressure is

7.00 x104 N/m2 is 90oC
