Problem: You have a sample of gas in a container with a movable piston, such as the one in the drawing.Redraw the container to show what it might look like if the temperature of the gas is increased from 300 to 500 K while the pressure is kept constant.

FREE Expert Solution

We have to redraw the given diagram when the temperature of the gas is increased from 300 K to 500 K at a constant pressure.


Charles’ law states that the volume of a certain amount of gas varies directly with its Kelvin temperature provided that the pressure remains constant.

V  T  VT = constant
