Hi, I am trying to figure out how much energy is stored in compressed air. I have figured out that a device I am looking at compresses about 174 cubic feet per minute into 35 cubic feet and that the temperature would rise from 70 F to 550 F.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I now want to know how much energy, in the form of heat, is available. I am assuming it is an adiabatic process.

Can you help me understand how I calculate the energy?

Thank you!!!
