A system has been devised to store acetonitrile safely at

A system has been devised to store acetonitrile safely at high pressures and temperatures. The acetonitrile is contained in a 0.2-ft3 tank maintained at 4500psia and 550°F. This tank is placed inside a second tank whose volume, excluding the volume of the first tank, is 2 ft3. Nitrogen at 10.0 atm and 550°F is contained in the second tank. Use the compressibility chart to estimate the final system pressure (atm) if the first tank ruptures and the final system temperature is 550°F. The critical temperature and pressure of acetonitrile are 548 K and 47.7 atm, respectively.
