Question: 1 the ships barometer reads 27 inhg a pressure gage...

Question details

1) The ships barometer reads 27 in-Hg. A pressure gage at a turbine inlet reads 460 psig. A vacuum gage at the turbine exhaust reads 23 in-Hg. Draw the pressure relationship graphs for these gages. What are the turbine inlet and exhaust pressures in psia? 2) The main ballast tanks in a submarine are open to the sea at the bottom of the tanks. The tanks are filled with air when the submarine is on the surface. If the ballast tanks bottom grates are 35 feet below the surface of the sea, what is the air pressure in the ballast tanks (psia; psig)?
