Problem: A cylinder with a movable piston contains 2.00 g of helium, He, at room temperature. More helium was added to the cylinder and the volume was adjusted so that the gas pressure remained the same. How many grams of helium were added to the cylinder if the volume was changed from 2.00 L to 3.70 L ? (The temperature was held constant.)

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked how many grams of helium were added to the cylinder if the volume was changed from 2.00 L to 3.70 L.


Since the gas is only the type (He) we can utilize the modified Avogadro's law using mass instead of moles.
