The volume and temperature of air (assumed to be an ideal gas) in a closed vessel is $2.87 m^{3}$ and $300 \: K$, respectively. The gauge pressure indicated by a manometer fitted to the wall of the vessel is $0.5$ bar. If the gas constant of air is $R=287 \: J/kg.K$ and the atmospheric pressure is $1$ bar, the mass of air (in $kg$) in the vessel is

  1. $1.67$
  2. $3.33$
  3. $5.00$

For a simple compressible system, $v, s, p$ and $T$ are specific volume, specific entropy, pressure and temperature, respectively. As per Maxwell's relations, $\bigg( \dfrac{\partial v}{\partial s} \bigg) _p$ is equal to $\bigg( \dfrac{\partial s}{\partial T} \bigg) _p \\$ ... $ - \bigg( \dfrac{\partial T}{\partial v} \bigg) _p \\$ $\bigg( \dfrac{\partial T}{\partial p} \bigg) _s$
