PROBLEM 34P

A sample of gas has an initial volume of 22.8 L at a pressure of 1.65 atm. If the sample is compressed to a volume of 10.7 L, what is its pressure? (Assume constant temperature.)

PROBLEM 34P

A sample of gas has an initial volume of 22.8 L at a pressure of 1/65 atm. If the sample is compressed to a volume of 10.7 L, what is it’s pressure? (Assume constant temperature)

Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 2

According to Boyle’s law, volume of a given amount of gas at constant temperature is inversely proportional to the pressure of gas.

PV = constant

For two different set of conditions,

Where

initial pressure of the gas

Final pressure of the gas

Initial volume of the gas

Final pressure of the gas
