Problem 2 (25 points) Pure propane is stored in a washed out salt cavern in the US Gulf Coast by a Utility Company for use in an emergency. Here are the facts about this storage facility. Mass of propane in storage = 600x10 6 lb mass Volume of the salt cavern = 20x10 6 cubic feet Temperature of the salt cavern = 150 ° F Saturated liquid density of propane at 150 ° F = 26.52 lb mass/cu foot Saturated vapor density of propane at 150 ° F = 3.74 lb mass/cu foot Vapor pressure of propane at 150 ° F = 360 psia Critical temperature of propane = 206.06 ° F Solution to Problem 2 a. Calculate the volume of liquid propane in the carven. First, determine the state of the system. To determine the state of the system, compute the total density of propane in the cavern and compare it to the given saturated liquid density and saturated vapor density.
