A fan drawing electricity at a rate of 1.5kw is located within rigid enclosure of 3m*4m*5m. Enclosure is filled with air at 27oC, 0.1 MPa. The fan operates for 30 minutes. Assume the ideal gas model, determine
a) mass (in kg) b) final T (in oC) and c) final pressure (in MPa). There is no heat transfer between the enclosure and surroundings. Ignore the volume occupied by the fan and assume the fan stores no energy.

Find the mass using density.
Find final temp using the specific heat capacity of air
for final pressure, assume ideal gas law
