Homework Help: Thermodynamics

Posted by Janus on Monday, March 1, 2010 at 8:01am.

A 12 cu.ft tank contains hydrogen sulfide gas at 150psia & 80°F after 5 pounds of the gas have been drawn out. Before any gas left the tank the temperature was 70°F.

What mass of gas was in the tank originally and what pressure?

just to check:
R=45.2
V=12cu.ft = 20736cu.in
t=80°f = 540°R

m=(PV)/(RT)
m=(150 x 20736 x (1/12)) / (45.5 x 540)
m=10.6195

original mass inside the tank
10.6195+5=15.6195lb

original pressure
P=(mRT)/V
P=(15.6195 x 45.2 x 530) / (20736 x (1/12))
P= 216.5398
