PETE 2032 Homework Solutions Chapter 3 3.8. A 20 ft 3 tank at 100 o F is pressured to 200 psia with a pure paraffin gas. Ten pounds of ethane are added, and the specific gravity of the gas mixture is measured to be 1.68. Assume that the gases act as ideal gases. What was the gas originally in the tank? ( 29 (
