One way that safety enters into specifications is to specify the composition of a vapor in air that could burn if ignited. If the range of concentration of benzene in air in which ignition could take place is 1.4 to 8.0 percent, what would be the corresponding temperatures for air saturated with benzene in the vapor space of a storage tank? The total pressure in the vapor space is 100 kPa.
