I have a homework problem where exhaust is traveling through an exhaust system (assumed to be air for simplicity) from and engine and then released into the atmosphere. The exhaust is at a temperature of 250F. I need to find the pressure at the beginning of the exhaust system.
I've been able to set this up and created an equation to solve for the pressure. I assumed that the pressure of the atmosphere where it it exits is 0 atm. But the problem is that the pressure depends on the density of the exhaust (air). I was only given temperature of the exhaust in the problem and I need a second property to determine density. Is there another way I can determine density? I am also given the volumetric flow rate and the area of the piping system
