Solution to Problem 134 Pressure Vessel

Problem 134
The wall thickness of a 4-ft-diameter spherical tank is 5/16 inch. Calculate the allowable internal pressure if the stress is limited to 8000 psi.

Solution 134



The thickness is 5/6 of an inch T_T

The solution was 5/16 of an inch T_T

The problem was updated from t = 5/6 to t = 5/16. Thank you.

Where are the numbers "12" and "16" came from?

To make it inch from ft , 4*12
and it was actually 5/16 , there was fault in
question, i think...
