# Problem: A gas sample containing 1.50 moles at 25°C exerts a pressure of 400. torr. Some gas is added to the same container and the temperature is increased to 50.°C. If the pressure increases to 800. torr, how many moles of gas were added to the container? Assume a constant-volume container.

###### FREE Expert Solution

We will use ideal gas equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{PV}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{nRT}}}$

P = pressure, atm
V = volume, L
n = moles, mol
R = gas constant = 0.08206 (L·atm)/(mol·K)
T = temperature, K

Step 1. Determine the volume:
