    Hi Guys, question here from a Petroleum Engineering assignment! Please answer what you can as I'm really struggling with this one!!

    A) Estimate the isothermal compressibility of a dry gas for use at 4,200 psia using the
    following data taken at 120 oF.

    B) Some of this gas is placed in a piston cylinder and pressurized to 6000 psia at 120
    oF. The volume occupied by gas becomes 500 cc. Calculate the number of poundmoles
    of gas in the cylinder.

    C) The cylinder pressure is isothermally reduced to 2800 psia by displacing the piston.
    What would be the new volume occupied by gas at this pressure?

    Pressure z factor
    6000 1.1252
    5600 1.0736
    5200 1.0222
    4800 0.9711
    4400 0.9207
    4000 0.8715
    3600 0.8243
    3200 0.7952
    2800 0.7824
    2600 0.781
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
