A syringe containing 1.55 mL of oxygen gas is cooled from 95.3 °C to 0.0 °C. What is the final volume of oxygen gas?
Step 1 of 3
The final volume will be 1.14 mL.
Your question involves charles’s law, which states that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its Kelvin temperature, with pressure and mass remaining constant. This means that if the volume increases, the temperature will also increase, and vice versa.
V1/T1=V2/T2, where V is volume, and T is temperature in Kelvins.
Rearrange the equation to isolate V2. Plug in the known values and solve.
V2 = V1T2/ T1
V2= 1.55mL×273.15 K / 368.45K = 1.14 mL
