Before I ask my question, I am going to buy your book hopefully you take Paypal. You sell a book and I get to say thank you. In the future now that I have will have your book. I don't need another when I have a question. Is there a way to donate to your cause of keeping us up to date on air compression? now for my question.

Thank You

You said in your answer if I put 6.8 of them into that same cubic foot I would reach 100 PSI. If I put 6.8 x 14.7lbs.of weight = approximately 100lbs. in the top of an air tight cylinder would I have created a compression chamber containing 100 psi?
Thank You

You need to compressor 6.8 cubic feet of free air (also known as one atmosphere or 14.7 PSI) into one cubic foot of space to create 100 PSI inside that space.

If the space is larger, the pressure will be less, or, if the space is smaller, the PSI will be higher.

I think the correct answer should have been, yes.
