Unformatted text preview: Problem 1: A 3-kg plastic tank that has a volume of 0.2 m3 is filled with liquid water. Assuming the density of water is 1000 kg/m3, determine the weight of the combined system. GWEN?

This is equivalent to defining the constant pressure specific heat, cp, of liquid water at STP to be: Cp = 1 Btu / lbm-R.

A commonly used formula for estimating ,1 of an ideal gas is: i=6L px/RT Where ,u is the Viscosity of the gas, p is the density of air, T is the-temperature in Kelvin, and C is an experimentally determined constant. Calculate the mean fiee path of air (in units of nm) at 25 °C and standard atmospheric pressure if the viscosity of air is 1.8003 x10'5 N—s/mz, the density of air is 1.169 kg/m3 the constant C is equal to 1.3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
