PROBLEM 51P

A sample of gas with an initial volume of 28.4 L at a pressure of 725 mm Hg and a temperature of 305 K is compressed to a volume of 14.8 L and warmed to a temperature of 375 K. What is the final pressure of the gas?

Problem 51P

A sample of gas with an initial volume of 28.4 L at a pressure of 725 mm Hg and a temperature of 305 K is compressed to a volume of 14.8 L and warmed to a temperature of 375 K. What is the final pressure of the gas?

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 2

According to the combined gas law,

.....................(1)

Rearrange the equation (1)

............................(2)

Here,

= Initial pressure of the gas

= Initial volume of the gas

= Initial temperature

= final pressure of the gas

= final volume of the gas

= final temperature
