Question

2. An aluminum scuba tank, which has an internal volume of 11.1 L, is filled with air to a pressure of 3000 psi when at room temperature (i.e. 20.0 OC). A diver takes the tank into seawater, where the water temperature is 46 degrees Fahrenheit (i.e. 8.00OC). To what pressure does the air in the tank drop? (The thermal coefficient of expansion for aluminum is 24.0x10-6 OC -1 .)

Answer: 2880 psi

**Don't need #2, just #3 please.**

3. For the air in the scuba tank in Problem 2, find:

(a) the rms speed of the oxygen molecules at room temperature;

(b) the rms speed of the nitrogen molecules at room temperature;

(c) the rms speed of the oxygen molecules at the colder temperature;

(d) the rms speed of the nitrogen molecules at the colder temperature;

(e) the total translational kinetic energy of the air molecules in the scuba tank.

(Note: the molar masses of nitrogen and oxygen gas are 28.0 g/mol and 32.0 g/mol, respectively.)

Answers: a) 478 m/s; b) 511 m/s; c) 468 m/s; d) 500 m/s; e) 330 kJ

4. The diver in Problem 2, while underwater at a depth of 20.0
m, breathes from the tank so that the air entering the diver’s
lungs is at the same pressure as that of the surrounding water. If
each breath fills the diver’s lungs to a volume of 3.70 L, and the
air he breathes warms to a temperature of 30.0OC, how many breaths
can the diver take before the air remaining in the tank drops to a
pressure of...

Scuba Tanks: A popular scuba tank is the “aluminum 80,” so named
because it can deliver 80 cubic feet of air at “normal” temperature
(72°F) and pressure (1.00 atm, 14.7 psi) when filled with air at a
pressure of 3000 psi. A particular aluminum 80 tank has a mass of
15 kg when empty. What is its mass when filled with air at 3000
psi?

A scuba tank initially has a pressure of 180 atm at 20◦ C. The
volume of the tank is 11.3 L.

store the gas at 1.00 atm at the same temperature?
(b) Before entering the water, a person consumes 2.0 L of air in
each breath, and breaths 12 times a minute. At this rate, how long
would the tank last?
(c) At a depth of 20.0 m, the...

A large diameter closed top tank is filled with a depth of 3
meters of a fluid (density 1200 kg/m3). A small pipe leading from
the bottom of the tank must carry the fluid some height above the
fluid level in the tank. a) If a pressure of 2.5 Atmospheres is
maintained in the space above the fill line in the tank how high
above the fill line can the pipe carry the fluid and still provide
an exit speed...

Consider a classroom filled with air. Let’s approximate air as
an ideal gas of N2-molecules (nitrogen) at normal conditions (P = 1
Bar and T = 300 Kelvin). Suppose the room has dimensions of 10 m by
10 m by 10 m (a pretty large auditorium). Let us also assume that
N2 molecule has 5 degrees of freedom (3 translational and 2
rotational). In this problem you will need to provide numeric
answers up to the first significant digit.
