Problem: A gas occupies a volume of 0.75 L at 20 oC at 720 torr. What volume would the gas occupy at 41 oC and 760 torr?

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the ideal gas law is:


PV = nRT


The initial and final pressure, volume, and temperature of the gas are related by the combined gas law:


P1V1T1=P2V2T2
