Problem 3.92 Determine  the  volume  in  m 3  occupied  by  40  kg  of  nitrogen (N 2 ) at 17 MPa, 180 K. Let  us  first  compute  the  compressibility  factor.  For  nitrogen, p crit  = 33.9 bars, T crit  = 126K. (Table A-1)   Hence p/pcrit = 17 x 10 6  / (33.9 x 10 5 ) = 5.014;  T/T crit  = 180/126 = 1.428 See Fig. 3.12. Z = 0.8 pV = Z m R T ;  V = (0.8)(40) (8314/28)(180)/(17 x 10 6 ) =  0.10m 3

Problem 3-105 A tank contains 10 lbm of air at 70 o F with a pressure of  30 lbf/in 2 . Determine the volume of air in ft 3 . Verify that  ideal  gas  behavior  can  be  assumed  for  these  conditions. First let us compute Z, the compressibility factor. For  air, p crit  = 37.2 atm; T crit  = 239 R; p/p crit  = (30 lbf/in 2 )/(37.2 x 14.696 lbf/in 2 ) = 0.0548 T/T crit  = (460 + 70) / 239 = 2.2176  Z from the figure is: 0.99; Hence ideal gas behavior can  be assumed.

    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.
