Problem: A 0.316 mol sample of nitrogen gas, N 2 (g), is placed in a 4.00 L container at 315 K.What is the pressure, in Torr, of the nitrogen gas? Express the answer using 3 significant figures.

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to find the pressure of N2 at the given conditions. Since moles, volume and temperature are given, we will use the ideal gas equation to calculate for pressure.

 PV=nRT

P = pressure, atm
V = volume, L
n = moles, mol
R = gas constant = 0.08206 (L·atm)/(mol·K)
T = temperature, K
