16.050 Thermal Energy Recitation #4 – Fall 2002 Problem 1: The Concorde is flying at its cruising altitude of 60,000 ft when suddenly one of the cockpit windows cracks and fails, leaving a hole of 5 cm diameter. How much time do the pilots have to put on their oxygen masks given that they pass out at a pressure of 0.1 bar? The initial pressure and temperature in the cockpit are 1 bar and 290K, and the cockpit volume is 10 m 3 . Assume that air is a perfect gas with γ = 1.4, the cockpit is well insulated, and that the flow out of the cockpit is choked. Page 1 of 1
