EGR 102 Introduction to Engineering Modeling Lab 04B Homework Part 1. Pressure is a force applied over an area and is measured in Pascal ( N/m 2 ) in metric units or in pounds per square inch, PSI, ( lb f /in 2 ) in English units. Write a MATLAB function that takes as input a pressure in PSI, then converts the value to Pascal, and outputs that value. Use the unit conversions: 1 lb f = 4.448 N and 39.370 in = 1 m Test the function twice in the Command Window using 1,800 lb f /in 2 (Gas powered pressure washer) and 195 lb f /in 2 (Internal Combustion Engine Combustion Chamber Pressure). Part 2 . The pressure P ( Pa ) of an ideal gas in a tank can be calculated from the number of moles of the gas n (k mol ), the volume V ( m 3 ) of the container, and the temperature it is being held at T ( K ) using the equation PV=nRT . The universal gas constant is R = 8.3145 x 10 3 Pa∙m 3 /(K∙kmol) . The gas has a mass m ( kg ), which is related to the number of moles n and the molecular mass M (
