Re: CO2 Volume
Whoa! Major bummer. Sorry folks, I must have been still sleeping this morning.
I forgot that the CO2 in the bottles is in liquid form and, of course, my whole calculation is wrong.
Molecular weight of CO2: 44 -> 44 grams => 1 Mol
5 US lbs => 2.27 kg => 51.6 Mol CO2
1 Mol of gas at atmospheric pressure => 22.4 l
51.6 Mol CO2 =>1156 l CO2
which, of course means that approximately 1156 l of CO2 are in a 5 lb bottle.
Again, let's assume our 25 cubic meter room, we would get a CO2 concentration of 4.6 percent. Still not dangerous, but definitely noticeable.
