Spherical Pressure Vessels When solving the problems for Section 8.2, assume that the given radius or diameter is an inside dimension and that all internal pressures are gage pressures. Problem 8.2-1 A large spherical tank (see figure) contains gas at a pressure of 450 psi. The tank is 42 ft in diameter and is constructed of high-strength steel having a yield stress in tension of 80 ksi. Determine the required thickness (to the nearest 1/4 inch) of the wall of the tank if a factor of safety of 3.5 with respect to yielding is required.
