63. Let the pressure outside the tyre be one atmosphere, and let

the internal pressure be n atmospheres ; then the time taken is
 about 863000 (w'' - 1) log^o ( g _ ^^ _ ^ ) seconds. If n = 2, this is
 infinite (as it should be); if n=3, the time is 2-75x10° sees.;
for n = 4, 3-30 xlO« sees.; for n = 10, 7-60x108; for n = 20,
15-05 X 0", When the internal pressure considerably exceeds the
external (as was probably intended), a rougher calculation is
appropriate, and leads to the result 750000 n sees. It will be
noticed that at 20 atmospheres, this is practically correct.
