The value nR is constant. For a given moles of gas, the initial and final pressure, volume, and temperature of the gas are related by the combined gas law:
A high altitude balloon is filled with 1.41 × 104 L of hydrogen at a temperature of 21 °C and a pressure of 745 torr. What is the volume of the balloon at a height of 20 km, where the temperature is –48 °C and the pressure is 63.1 torr?
