Starting out on a trip into the mountains, you inflate the tires in your car to a recommended pressure of 3.21x105 Pa on a day when the temperature is –5.0°C. You drive to the beach, where the temperature is 28.0°C. Assume that the volume of the tire has been increased by 3%. What is the final pressure in the tires? The manufacturer of the tire recommends that you not exceed the recommended pressure by more than 10%. Has the limit been exceeded?
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about standard tire inflation at a temperature of -5°C and starting for a road trip where the temperature is 28°C. The increase in tire pressure needs to be calculated.
