Problem: A sample of gas in a balloon has an initial temperature of 9°C and a volume of 1200L . If the temperature changes to 85°C , and there is no change of pressure or amount of gas, what is the new volume, V2, of the gas? What Celsius temperature, T2, is required to change the volume of the gas sample in Part A (T1 = 9°C , V1= 1200L ) to a volume of 2400L ? Assume no change in pressure or the amount of gas in the balloon.
