# Problem: A tank is filled with an ideal gas at 400  and pressure of 1.00 .Having been heated to 800 , at some point the tank starts to leak. By the time the leak is repaired, the tank is only half full, and the pressure of the remaining gas is again 1.00 . What is the temperature of the gas?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Ideal gas equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{T}}}$

P2 = 2atm

T2 = 800 K

P3 = 1 atm

T3 = ?

The volume of the tank does not change. The gas occupies the tank completely.
