Calculate the mass of air in an air-filled tire and the mass of helium in a helium-filled tire. What is the mass difference between the two? Assume that the volume of the tire is 857 , that it is filled with a total pressure of 125 psi, and that the temperature is 26 . Also, assume an average molar mass for air of 28.8 .
