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
