Problem: To what volume will a sample of gas expand if it is heated from 50.0°C and 2.33 L to 500.0°C?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to determine the volume that a sample of gas will expand if it is heated from 50.0°C and 2.33 L to 500.0°C.

Recall the ideal gas Law:

PV = nRT

Get volume:

PVP = nRTPV = nRTP


Use combined gas law where nR/P is constant:

VT = nRTPTVT = nRPV1T1 =V2T2
