A balloon with an initial volume of 3.2 L at a temperature of 299 K is warmed to 376 K. What is its volume at 376 K?
Initial volume of balloon = 3.2 L
Initial Temperature = 299 K
Final Temperature = 376 K.
Final volume @ 376 K = ?
Charles’s law states that ‘At a fixed pressure, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the kelvin temperature of the gas.’
Mathematically it can be represented as :
V T Or = k
V = volume of the gas,
T = temperature of the gas (measured in kelvins),
k = constant.
