A fixed amount of a particular ideal gas at 168C and a pressure of 1.75 3 105 Pa occupies a volume of 2.75 m3. If the volume is increased to 4.20 m3 and the temperature is raised to 26.48C, what will be the new pressure of the gas?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given values:

Initial pressure, P1 = 1.75 x 105 Pa

Final pressure, P2 =?

T1 = 16.8 oC = 16.8 + 273 = 289.8 K

T2 = 26.48 oC = 299.48 K

V1 = 2.75 m3

V2 = 4.20 m3

Step 2

The ideal gas equation:
