Mass Percent

Q. ) A liquid gas bottle which contains 11 kg of propane (C3H8) leaks (until empty) into a warehouse which volume is 150 m3. We know that propane forms an explosive mixture with air when the propane concentration is 2.2 -9.5 volume-%. In the above case, is there a risk for explosion? Assume that the warehouse has NTP-conditions and we don’t need to take the increase in pressure (because of the leakage) into account.
