Unformatted text preview: Hg OR P_Gage = 0.018 atm = 36.8 lbf/ft2 = 1730 Pa NOTE: solution makes use of g/gc conversion for English units as well as 144 in2 = 1 ft2 and 1 atm = 14.7 psi, and = 62.4
H20 lbm/ft3. 459.67 459.67 y y Or, if you use T_avg = 58 F, then h = 8650 ft. Here's an extra problem you can practice on. NOTE: the solution assumes the bottom of the tank can move, compressing the air inside, which was not clear from the problem statement. Hence, the answers are different here than your solutions. When tank has a fixed bottom, e.g., fixed volume, then h = 1.27 ft for (a) and F = 337 lbf for (b) ...
