Calculation

22. A 3kg plastic tank that has a volume of 0.2 m 3 is filled with liquid water. Assuming the density of water is 1000 kg/m 3 , determine the weight of the combined system. (Answer: 1991N)

23. Determine the mass and the weight of the air contained in a room whose dimensions are 6m x 6m x 8m. Assume the density of the air is 1.16 kg/m 3 . (Answers: 334.1 kg, 3277 N)

24. A vacuum gage connected to a chamber reads 35 kPa at a location where the atmospheric pressure is 92 kPa. Determine the absolute pressure in the chamber. (Answer: 57kPa)

25. A gas is contained in a vertical, frictionless pistoncylinder device. The piston has a mass of 4 kg and a cross-sectional area of 35 cm 2 . A compressed spring above the piston exerts a force of 60 N on the piston. If the atmospheric pressure is 95 kPa, determine the pressure inside the cylinder. (Answer: 123.4kPa)

26. A manometer containing oil (ρ = 850 kg/m 3 ) is attached to a tank filled with air. If the oil-level difference between the two columns is 60 cm and the atmospheric pressure is 98 kPa, determine the absolute pressure of the air in the tank. (Answer: 103kPa).
