How much carbondioxide can the Dome hold?
We do not have a complete sphere in our exhibition, but the calculations are done pretending the Dome is whole. It has 12 equal sections with a total circumference of 22,2 meters. The volume is calculated first, then the amount of carbon dioxide it can hold.
We have the circumference, and thus can find the radius:
Calculating the volume:
By using the molar volume of an ideal gas (given by snl.no) we can calculate the number of moles of a gas the Dome can hold:
Now we can use this information to calculate the mass of carbon dioxide:
This shows that the Dome could hold 0,328 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
