Evaluating the Effects of Changes in P. V. n. and T on a Gas
Suppose we have a gas confined to a cylinder with a movable piston that is sealed so there are no leaks. ««-(Sections 5.2. 5.3) How will each of the following changes affect (i) the pressure of the gas. (i) the number of moles of gas in the cylinder, (i) the average distance between molecules: <a) Heating the gas while maintaining a constant pressure: <b) Reducing the volume while maintaining a constant temperature: <c) Injecting additional gas while keeping the temperature and volume constant.
An oxygen cylinder used in a hospital contains 35.4 L of oxygen gas at a pressure of 14G.6 atm. How much volume would the oxygen occupy if it were transferred to a container that maintained a pressure of 1.00 atm if the temperature remains constant?
