thickness needed to obtain a safety factor FS = 1.5.

Problem 7.87

Suppose that you are designing a spherical pressure vessel
with a 200-mm radius to be used in a fuel cell to provide power in a satellite.
The maximum internal pressure will be 16 MPa, and the external pressure will be
negligible. Choose an aluminum alloy from Appendix B, and determine the wall
