a. at what temperature will the tank burst?

b. will it burst if placed in a fire burning at 1275 K?

I was told to use (V1/T1) = (V2/T2) but do I keep the same volume?

**DrBob222**, Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 11:15pmI misspoke. I should have said (P1/T1) = (P2/T2)

a. You can work a without any work except reasoning on your part. If you double the pressure that will be 1.92*2 = 3.84 atm and that is less than 5.76 so that tank should not rupture.

b.

Use the above p/t formula.

P1 = 1.92 atm

T1 = 300 K

P2 = ?

T2 = 1275 K.

(1.92/300) = (P2/1275)

Solve for P2 and compare with the rupture pressure of 5.76 atm.
