Step 1 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseAt a particular moment in time, the pressure on the balloonis 20 psi. The PV relationship equation is given as Pv = 4500. Thus, the volume at that time = 4500 /20 =225 inch3. fullscreen
Step 2 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseSo after one hour the pressure will be (20 2.4) psi 22.4 psi as the pressure is increasing at the rate of 2.4 psi/hr. So the volume will be 4500 / 22.4 200.89 inch3. fullscreen
