Problem 35E

If we warm a volume of air, it expands. Does it then follow that if we expand a volume of air, it warms? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 35E Step 1: If we warm a volume of air, the temperature of the air, ‘T’ will change. The volume, ‘V’ of the volume will change and the pressure, ‘P’ of the air will change. It can be explained by using the ideal gas law equation, PV = nRT Where, P - Pressure of the gas V - volume of the gas n - Number of gas molecules R - universal gas constant T - Temperature of the gas If we expand the volume of air, there are three possibilities. We know that the number of molecules, ‘n’ is not changing in this problem. According to Charles law, if air is expanded, its volume will increase which will...
