Gas pressure and Heat question

Recommended Posts

I currently have room with all my Batteries (12), a coal gen and a makeshift tank filling up with contaminated water. The room, being air sealed with double air locks, is slowly building up with contaminated oxygen(2600g), CO2(2500g), and heat(167C). (highest points)

My question is, is there a point where the air pressure will break the walls, or might the heat destroy the batteries/walls?

No, there isn't. Gas pressure eventually reaches a maximum and will never be enough to destroy walls (unrealistically). You can prove this by comparing the pressure difference between a vacuum and a room with full pressure. The wall between them will not break, no matter the atmosphere, and no matter how weak the material between them is. Gas currently cannot displace material. Though, it would be great if it could provide a driving force. Would also be great if the speed of the diffusion at which gasses move is twice its current speed.
