At 298 K, a sample of N2 gas has a volume of 37.42 L and a pressure of 745 torr

We’re being asked to determine the volume of the gas sample if the pressure changes to 894 torr at a constant temperature.


Recall that the ideal gas law is:


PV=nRT


The pressure and volume of a gas are related to the number of moles, gas constant and temperatureThe value nRT is constant
