Special Problems for ME 200 – Fall 2009 Special Problems 1 & 2 Due Friday, August 28, 2009 SP1: A 10 m 3 rigid tank has two sections separated by a membrane. Each section contains nitrogen gas. The nitrogen gas in section A has initial density of 1.6 kg/m 3 and the nitrogen gas in section B has a mass of 6 kg. At a certain time, the membrane is punctured. The final density of the nitrogen gas in the tank is found to be 1.8 kg/m 3 . Determine the initial density (kg/m 3 ) of nitrogen gas that existed in section B.
