Problem: If 9.93 moles of hydrogen gas fills up 56.9 L of a tank, the pressure will be 1,140 torr at what temperature in °C?A. 0.170 B. 168 C. -155.7 D. -170 E. 100.0

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the temperature of hydrogen in °C.


We will use ideal gas equation to calculate for the pressure:

PV=nRT

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