Answer to Question #1507 in Mechanics | Relativity for mike
The tire on a bicycle is filled with air to a
gauge pressure of 658 kPa at 20 degrees C.
What is the gauge pressure in the tire after
a ride on a hot day when the tire air temperature is 60 degrees C? (Assume constant volume and a
constant atmospheric pressure of 101.3 kPa.)
Answer in units of kPa.
For the constant volume we use Gay-Lussac's law: P1/T1= P2/T2
