I have been asked to design a pressure vessel and the data given to me for the problem is -(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

content -oil of density 0.9 g/ cm3.

material with ultimate tensile strength of 70,000 psi.

factor of safety 3.

volume 50 m3.

How do I calculate the internal pressure and diameter, which I will need to calculate the shell thickness.The relation between length and diameter is not given.Also, is the data given to me insufficient to design the pressure vessel?
