This is because the higher temperature causes the cryogenic liquid to heat up and convert into gas. Therefore, the statement "Because cryogenic liquids are kept at temperatures below -130 degrees Fahrenheit, they will vaporize rapidly when exposed to the higher ambient temperatures of the atmosphere outside the tank" is true.

    Pressure relief devices need to be capable of operating _____ in order to keep the tank from failing violently, or rupturing.

    Correct Answer
    Freely, freely
    Explanation
    Pressure relief devices need to be capable of operating "freely" in order to keep the tank from failing violently or rupturing. This means that the pressure relief devices should have unrestricted movement and should not be obstructed or stuck. If the devices are not able to operate freely, they may not be able to release excess pressure from the tank, leading to a potential explosion or rupture. Therefore, it is crucial for pressure relief devices to have the ability to operate without any hindrance.
