# Problem: A fixed quantity of gas at 23 oC exhibits a pressure of 756 torr and occupies a volume of 5.32 L.Calculate the volume the gas will occupy if the temperature is increased to 175 oC while the pressure is held constant.

###### FREE Expert Solution

The initial and final temperature and volume of the gas are related by Charles’ Law:

$\overline{)\frac{{\mathbf{V}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{V}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{2}}}}$
