A steel tank at 300 K contains 0.285 L of gas at 1.92 atm pressure. The tank is capable of withstanding a maximum pressure of 5.76 atm. Assuming that doubling the kelvin temperature causes the internal pressure to double,
a. at what temperature will the tank burst?
b. will it burst if placed in a fire burning at 1275 K?
Use (V1/T1) = (V2/T2)
