138. You have two rigid gas cylinders. Gas cylinder A has a volume of 48.2 L and contains N2(g) at 8.35 atm at 25 °C. Gas cylinder B has a volume of 22.0 L and contains He(g) at 25 °C. When the two cylinders are connected with a valve of negligible volume and the gases are mixed, the pressure in each cylinder becomes 8.71 atm. (Assume no reaction when the gases are mixed.) a. How many nitrogen molecules are present? b. What is the total number of moles of N2(g) and He(g) present after the gases are mixed? c. What was the beginning pressure of cylinder B containing only the He(g) (i.e., before the valve was connected)? d. Think about the He(g) before and after the cylinders were connected. Graph the relationship between pressure and volume (without numbers) for the He(g) showing this change, and explain your answer, making sure to address the variables P, V, n, and T.

Question

138. You have two rigid gas cylinders. Gas cylinder A has a volume of 48.2 L and contains N2(g) at 8.35 atm at 25 °C. Gas cylinder B has a volume of 22.0 L and contains He(g) at 25 °C. When the two cylinders are connected with a valve of negligible volume and the gases are mixed, the pressure in each cylinder becomes 8.71 atm. (Assume no reaction when the gases are mixed.)

a. How many nitrogen molecules are present?

b. What is the total number of moles of N2(g) and He(g) present after the gases are mixed?

c. What was the beginning pressure of cylinder B containing only the He(g) (i.e., before the valve was connected)?

d. Think about the He(g) before and after the cylinders were connected. Graph the relationship between pressure and volume (without numbers) for the He(g) showing this change, and explain your answer, making sure to address the variables P, V, n, and T.
