A 48.1 mL sample of gas in a cylinder is warmed from 23 ∘C to 83 ∘C.

What is its volume at the final temperature? (Assume constant pressure.)


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Temperature of the gas at initial stage (T1) = 23 °C

Volume at initial stage (V1) = 48.1 mL

Temperature at final stage (T2) = 83 °C

Step 2

Charles Law states that at constant pressure , the volume of a sample is directly proportional to the temperature.

The expression for Charles Law is represented as follows:
