Problem 1.41 [Difficulty: 2] Given: Air in hot air balloon Hg mm 1 759 ± = p C 1 60 ° ± = T Find: (a) Air density using ideal gas equation of state (b) Estimate of uncertainty in calculated value Solution: We will apply uncertainty concepts. Governing Equations: ρ p RT = (Ideal gas equation of state) 2 1 2 1 1 1 + ± = L x R u x R R x u (Propagation of Uncertainties) We can express density as: ρ 101 10 3 N m 2 × kg K 287 N m × 1 333 K × 1.06 kg m 3 = = ρ 1.06 kg m 3 = 2 1 2 2 + ± = T p u T
