Problem: What is the pressure in a 13.0-L cylinder filled with 0.500 mol of nitrogen gas at a temperature of 315 K ?

FREE Expert Solution

We have to calculate the pressure of 0.500 mol nitrogen gas inside a 13.0-L cylinder filled at a temperature of 315 K.


We will use the ideal gas equation to solve this problem.

PV = nRT

Where,

P = pressure

V = volume

n = number of moles

R = gas constant = 0.08206 L•atm/mol•K

T = temperature in Kelvin units
