Problem Statement: 59 A vacuum gage connected to a tank reads 15 kPa at a location where the barometric reading 750 mm Hg. Determine the absolute pressure in the tank. Schematic: Assumptions/Approximations: g is constant Physical Laws: [Equation 1-19] [Equation 1-15, for a vacuum] Properties/Sources: Conversions: 13590 1 N = 1.00 1mm = 0 m g = 9.81 1 kPa = 1000.00 Calculations: h = 0.75 m 100.0 kPa 85.0 kPa Reasoning/Verification/Discussion: Note that a vacuum reading is subtracted from atmospheric pressure. P ATM = ρ *g*h P ABS = P ATM - P GAGE ρ Hg = kg/m 3 kg*m/s 2 m/s 2 N/m 2 P ATM = ρ Hg *g*h = P ABS = P ATM - P GAGE = P ABS P ATM = 750 mmHg 15 kPa kPa
