Problem 48P

PROBLEM 48P

A cylinder with a moveable piston contains 0.87 mol of gas and has a volume of 334 mL. What will its volume be if an additional 0.22 mol of gas is added to the cylinder?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 48P

Here, we are going to calculate the volume of the resultant concentration of gas.

Step 1:

Avogadro's law states that equal volumes(V) of all gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure contain equal number of molecules.

Mathematically, we can write

V n,        where n is the number of moles of the gas.

V = kn, k being a constant.

Now, if V1, n1 are the volume and number of moles of the gas initially and V2, n2 are the volume and number of moles of the gas finally, then,

V1 = kn1

V2 = kn2

Combining the two equations, we get, V1 / n1 = V2 / n2        -----(1)
