Given a 19kg Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinder, with this specification:
- LPG inside the cylinder weighs
- The internal volume of the cylinder is
- The LPG is a mixture of
propane gas (60%)and
I would like to calculate the volume of LPG contained in the cylinder. This is the volume the pressurised gas will uncompress to, if it escapes the cylinder.
I have looked at the Ideal Gas Law:
Pressure x Volume = Number of Moles x Gas constant x Temperature
But I cannot use it as I do not know about the pressure inside the cylinder and volume is the unknown I am interested in.
How do I proceed with this problem?
