PROBLEM 123P

Which gas sample has the greatest pressure? Assume they are all at the same temperature. Explain.

(a) 

(b) 

(c) 

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 123P

Here, we are going to identify the gas sample having greatest pressure.

Step 1:

At constant temperature and volume, the pressure(p) of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles(n).

Thus,                        

                                p ∝ n

Step 2:

As we have seen, the number of molecules is highest in sample (c), corresponding to highest number of moles.

Thus, sample (c) has highest pressure.
