FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the pressure of gas of a 59.6 L sample containing 3.01 mol at 44.9°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 = 0.0821 L • atm/(K • mol)
T = temperature, K
