Given:

Pressure (P)=1.2 MPa = 1.2 x106 Pa

Volume (V)= 0.03 m3

Temperature (T)= 100 oC=373 K

The characteristic gas constant for air (R) = 300 Jkg−1K−1.


To Find :

Mass of the gas(M)


Solution :

Assuming air as an ideal gas , It obeys ideal gas equation P.V=M RT

Mass (M) of air is given by

0.322 kg
