    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Inflate the tyre from 10 psig to 30 psig.
    Explain the process of mass and energy transfer in inflating tyre

    2. Relevant equations
    No equation

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think there is no energy transfer on it process and there is only mass transfer. But i read some article it says that it increase the heat to in its process. Can someone explain?

    If the tyre were to explode energy would be released right? Where did that energy come from originally if not the pump?
