absolute pressure in the evacuated space. Assume the

temperature to remain constant.

A scuba diver takes a tank of air on a deep dive. The tank's
volume is 10 L and it is completely filled with air at an absolute
pressure of 237 atm at the start of the dive. The air temperature
at the surface is 85 ?F and the diver ends up in deep water at 60
?F.
Assuming thermal equilibrium and neglecting air loss, determine
the absolute internal pressure of the air when it is cold.

A compressed air tank has a volume of 0.81 ft3. The
temperature is 70 °F and the atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psia.
When the tank is filled with air at a pressure of 46 psig,
determine the density of the air and the weight of air in the
tank.
Answer in lb

A closed, rigid tank is filled with water. Initially, the tank
holds 1.0 lb of saturated vapor and 7.0 lb of saturated liquid,
each at 212°F. The water is heated until the tank contains only
saturated vapor. Kinetic and potential energy effects can be
ignored. Determine the volume of the tank, in ft3, the temperature
at the final state, in °F, and the heat transfer, in Btu.

A closed, rigid, 0.40 m3 tank is filled with 12 kg of
water. The initial pressure is p1 = 20 bar. The
water is cooled until the pressure is p2= 4
bar.
Determine the initial quality, x1, and the heat
transfer, in kJ.

a) A closed tank of fixed volume initially contains air at 200
kPag (gauge) pressure and 20oC temperature. One (1.0) kilogram of
air is added to the tank by an air compressor to bring the tank
pressure to 300 kPag and temperature to 32oC. Find the tank volume.
Specify any assumptions used.
b) To the same tank as above, a gas mixture containing CO and
CO2 is added to replace the air. With 2 kg of the gas mixture
added,...

A SCUBA tank, an air tank used for breathing under water, is
initially filled with gas at a pressure of 2.8x107 Pa and 32 oC.
The tank has a volume of 11.5 L. If the tank will continue to
provide air until it reaches a pressure of 1.2x106 Pa, how many
moles of gas will it provide to a diver diving in water at 10 oC?
Give your answer in moles to at least three significant figures.
Hint: There will...

A SCUBA tank, an air tank used for breathing under water, is
initially filled with gas at a pressure of 2.3x107 Pa
and 25 oC. The tank has a volume of 16.0 L. If the tank
will continue to provide air until it reaches a pressure of
2.5x106 Pa, how many moles of gas will it provide to a
diver diving in water at 6 oC? Give your answer in moles
to at least three significant figures. Hint: There will...

A closed, rigid tank is filled with a gas modeled as an ideal
gas, initially at 80°C and a gage pressure of 300 kPa. The gas is
heated, and the gage pressure at the final state is 500 kPa. The
local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm.
Determine the final temperature, in °C.

A 0.6-m3 rigid tank is filled with saturated
liquid water at 170
°C. A valve at the bottom of
the tank is now opened, and one-half of the total mass is withdrawn
from the tank in liquid
form. Heat is transferred to water from a source of 210 °C so that
the temperature in the tank
remains constant. Determine (a) the amount of heat transfer and (b)
the reversible work and
exergy destruction for this process. Assume the surroundings to...

Submarines change their depth by adding or removing air from
rigid ballast tanks, thereby displacing seawater in the tanks.
Consider a submarine that has a 1,200 m^3 ballast tank originally
partially filled with 120 m^3 of air at 2,175 kPa. and 15 degrees
C. For the submarine to surface, air at 2,175 kPa and 15 degrees C
is pumped into the ballast tank in such a way that the temperature
and pressure of the air remain constant until it is...
