PROBLEM 128P

Aerosol cans carry clear warnings against incineration because of the high pressures that can develop upon heating. Suppose a can contains a residual amount of gas at a pressure of 755 mm Hg and 25 °C. What would the pressure be if the can were heated to 1155 °C?

Solution 128P

Given that

Pressure P1=755 mm of Hg

Temperature T1=250C

Temperature T2=1155 0C

Pressure P2=?

We know that

Temperature must be...
