While we did not explicitly cover the use of this equation in our notes, let’s use it to answer the following question. No calculation is required. Just use the equation to explain your answer. In some countries, cars use propane as a fuel rather than gasoline. In those countries, the government will issue a standard size tank that each car will use to store propane. The capacity of propane within each tank is regulated by pressure. So, when you refill your tank of propane, the tank is considered full when it reaches a predetermined internal pressure. Each person will pay a fee for refilling the tank and the amount of money owed is based upon the amount of propane required to fill the tank to the predetermined pressure value. In the summer, propane filling stations do very little business during the day. This is because no one chooses to fill a propane tank during the day. Why would it be advantageous to fill the tank at night? Use the equation to explain your answer. rooftop = 6480 in3 x 15 x 14.4 = 648mbs2DecreaseDecreaseStay the SameIncrease
