Question ID: 739831
Suppose, I have a cylinder made of sufficiently strong materials.  One of the
side is made up of copper sheet (with strong enough welds and joints)
.  Assuming radius r and height h for the cylinder and d the thickness
of the sheet (same radius), what is the safe presssure I can put
inside the cylinder. specifically will a 0.2 mm Copper sheet of area
100 cm^2 hold 8 atms in the cylinder within safe limits ??
Will 10 cm^2 area sheet do the job ?? A analytical formula would be
the best answer. Assume standard grade copper ...nothing fancy...
There is no answer at this time.

My guess is yes. An aluminum pop can take several atnospheres.

Does your can contain a valve?  Is it bimetal?  Will it be heat
treated after being formed? Is the fluid inside corrosive? Pure copper
is rather soft assume a standard plumbing alloy.
