Question

The density of a particular fluid is given by the following equation:
where rho = 64e^((7.9x10^-7)P) where rho is density in units [lbm/ft^3] and P is pressure in units [lbf/in^2, or “psi – pounds per square
inch”].
a. What are the units of 64 and 7.9x10^-7?
b. For a pressure of 8.5x10^6 N/m^2, what is the density in units [kg/liter]? You may or may not find it more logical to do part c before part b.
c. Rewrite this formula for [kg/liter] as a function of P [N/m^2]. Plug in your answers from part b to check your answer.
