Homework Help: Volume vapour calculation for jet fuel a1

  1. Jul 25, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    is there any formulae for obtain the volume vapour % V/V. we have a jet fuel a1 10 liters in the closed chamber.the temperature measured inside is 41 degree. we want to know how much vapour it can generate at the particular temperature. we have the following data
    1. fuel ; jet fuel a1
    qty: 10 liters
    chamber size: 27 cum
    temperature inside chamber: 41 degree
    data given ; Vapour pressure <0.1kpa @ 20 degree c
    flashpoint : 30 degree
    flammable limits upper: 6%V/V

    can anyone help us to solve the problem to calculate the partial pressure in the chamber by that can we derive volume vapour V/V
    2. Relevant equations[/b

    3. The attempt at a solution
