An air compressor is a device that pumps air particles into a tank. A particular air compressor adds air particles to its tank until the particle density of the inside air is 40 times that of the outside air. If the temperature inside the tank is the same as that outside, how does the pressure inside the tank compare to the pressure outside? Assume atmospheric pressure equal to 100,000 Pa.
