Q1) 200 cu ft of ethane is to be compressed from 32F and atmospheric pressure
to 550 psig and a temperature of 620R. What volume will it occupy under these

Q2) 30API oil has been discovered and must be analysed in the lab. Assuming it
is kept at conditions of 32F at atmospheric pressure, what is the density and
specific gravity?

Q3) Calculate the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a 50API
mixed base oil from 200 to 400F.

Q4) Calculate the density of a 25.7 API material at 60 and 500F.
