1. A tank having a volume of 30 m3 contains air

at 400 kPa. We intend to charge this tank through a feed line having a diameter

of 4 cm and a length of 30 m. Pressurized air at 900 kPa and 15 C enters the

feed line. Find the time it takes for the tank pressure to reach 900 kPa.

2. A tank having a volume of 40 m3 contains air

at 500 kPa. We intend to charge this tank through a feed line having a diameter

of 4 cm and a length of 30 m. Pressurized air at 900 kPa and 15 C enters the

feed line. Find the tank pressure after 2 minutes. Plot the tank pressure and

the inlet mass flow rate versus time.
