Question

Consider an Airbus A330, whose cargo hold has a volume of 43.3 m'.Assume the passenger compartment has the same volume, a temperature of 15°C, and a pressure matching the International

Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standard atmosphere at an elevation of 2,000 m. Air MW = 29 g/mol, and recall Ro =8.314 Nm/mol K.Hint, see Canvas, Week 1, Fluid Property Tables.
