Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Mike on Friday, October 12, 2007 at 1:56am.

Different gases have different compression properties.

My interest here is the type of gas used to fill a cylinder intended to inflate a liferaft on a ship. I understand it is Co2 or a mixture of Co2 + others?

Co2 compresses at 600:1 whereas the compression ratio of air is much less. Therefore if air was used as a medium to inflate a liferaft the cylinder would be much larger & heavier?

Please confirm/correct the above statements.

Thank you

Mike
