You conduct an experiment in which you measure the temperature (T) and volume (V) of a mysterious sphere of gas at several different temperatures.
The sphere can expand or shrink to any volume without changing the pressure of the gas inside.
As a result of your experiment, you find that the volume (V) of the gas divided by its temperature (T) is always equal to 1.75.
What would the volume (V) of the gas be at a temperature of 300K? (assume the unit for volume is liters)
Show your work and answer the question with a clear statement. Show each step of your calculations for full points. After showing your calculations, answer the question with a clear statement.
PV = nr T n (number of moles ) is constant r is a gas constant
so PV = k T
PV / T = constant
But Pressure is constant in this scenario too soooo
V/T = constant
Originally V/T = 1.75 (constant)
Then what is V when T = 300 K ?
V / (300) = 1.75 V = (300)(1.75) = 525 Liters
