A metal tank with volume 3.10 L will burst if the pressure of the gas it contains exceeds 100 atm.
(a) If 11.0 mol of an ideal gas is put into the tank at a temperature of 23.00C, to what temperature can the gas be warmed before the tank ruptures? You can ignore the thermal expansion of the tank.
(b) Based on your answer to part (a), is it reasonable to ignore the thermal expansion of the tank? Explain?
Please focus on part (b). Thank you very much.
YEs, the effect of temperature on a gas is much greater than the effect on the metal tank.
