temprature

To determine the temperature that occurred in a ?re in a warehouse, the arson investigator noticed that the relief valve on a methane storage tank had popped open at 3000 psig, the rated value. Before the ?re started, the tank was presumably at ambient conditions and the gage read 1950 psig. If the volume of the tank was 240 cubic feet, estimate the temperature during the ?re.
