Problem: A helium balloon is filled to a volume of 5.60 L at 25 °C. What will the volume of the balloon become if it is put into liquid nitrogen to lower the temperature of the helium to 77 K?a) 22 Lb) 0.046 Lc) 1.4 Ld) 3.7 Le) 17 L

FREE Expert Solution

Therefore, the initial and final temperature and volume of the gas are related by Charles’s Law:

$\overline{)\frac{{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{2}}}}$
