As will be discussed in detail in Chapter 5, the ideal-gas equation of state relates absolute pressure, P(atm); gas volume, V(liters); number of moles of gas, n mol ; and absolute temperature, T(K): PV 0:08206nT

(a) Convert the equation to one relating P psig , V (ft3) , n (lb-mole) , and T (°F) .

(b) A 30.0 mole%CO and 70.0 mole%N2 gas mixture is stored in a cylinder with a volume of 3.5ft^3 at a temperature of 85°F. The reading on a Bourdon gauge attached to the cylinder is 500 psi. Calculate the total amount.
