Question #43701

Problem 12.29

On March 5, 2006, a new college basketball attendance record of 33,633 was set in Syracuse University's Carrier Dome in the last regular-season game against Villanova. The volume of air in the dome is about 1.5×106m3.

Part A

Estimate the temperature change of the air in 2 h, if all the seats in the dome are filled and each person transfers his or her metabolic thermal energy to the air in the dome at a rate of 100 W (100 J/s). Assume that no thermal energy leaves the air through the walls, floor, or ceiling of the dome and specific heat of air is 1000 J/kg⋅∘C.
