Problem: A sample of neon gas at 305 K and 0.372 atm occupies a volume of 1.89 L. If the pressure of the gas is increased, while at the same time it is heated to a higher temperature, the final gas volume (a) could be larger or smaller than 1.89 L depending on the final pressure and temperature. (b) will be larger than 1.89 L. (c) will be smaller than 1.89 L.
