Air is used at a rate of 30 cfm from a receiver at 102 degress Farenheit and 155 psi. If the atmospheric conditions are 14.7 psia and 75 degrees farenheit, how many cfm of free air must the compressor provide?

Solution Preview

P1 = 155 psi
P2 = 14.7 psia (psi and psia both are equal)
1 psi or psia = 6.89*10^3 Pascal
T1 = 102 degree F ...
