1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Air inside a sealed tin can is initially at a pressure of 200 kPa and temperature of 20 ◦C. The tin can is known to burst at a pressure of 500 kPa. If the pressure is raised through heating, at what temperature will it burst? If you used an air compressor to pump up the can to high pressure, would the temperature before bursting be the same? If not, why not? 2. Relevant equations Pv=RT P1/T1=P2/T2 3. The attempt at a solution I'm confused. Why can't I just use the perfect gas law with constant volume to solve for the second temperature? I get a result of 459.5degrees but solutions state that the answer should be 483 degrees.
