A cylindrical propane tank used for portable cooking stoves has an interior length of 16.5 cm and a diameter of 6.5 cm. The mass of the gas inside is 400g. Approximately how much pressure is exerted on the walls of the container when the temperature is 75^oF? Propane has a molecular mass of 44 g/mol.
Solution is as follows:
P = nRT/V
We need to find each quantity in the right hand side.
n = mass/ molecular mass ...
Solution is provided showing every step required.
