An oxygen cylinder for medical use contains oxygen at a pressure of 140 atm, at room temperature (20[itex]\circ[/itex]C). The cylinder measures 20 cm in diameter and 110 cm in length. How many kilograms of oxygen does this cylinder contain? What will be the volume of the oxygen if it is allowed to expand slowly to normal atmospheric pressure, at room temperature?
ideal-gas law pV=nRT
The Attempt at a Solution
Vcylinder= ∏r2h=(∏)(10 cm)2(110 cm)=3.45 cm3
moxygen= 3.45 cm3 X 1.141 g[itex]\bullet[/itex]cm3=3.94 g or 0.00394 kg
According to the book the answer to this part is 6.4 kg
