Posted by Janaih on Sunday, April 27, 2008 at 12:56pm.

Compressed air can be pumped underground into huge caverns as a form of energy storage. The volume of a cavern is 5.60 105 m3, and the pressure of the air in it is 8.40 106 Pa. Assume that air is a diatomic ideal gas whose internal energy U is given by U = 5/2 nRT. If one home uses 14.0 kWh of energy per day, how many homes could this internal energy serve for one day?
