PETA is also an explosive, but not as famous as TNT. Upon detonation, PETN will decompose to form different gases as shown in the following chemical equation. If 2.48 grams of PETN is detonated in a steel container, after the gases go back to room temperature (25 degrees celcius). The pressure inside the container is 28.4 atm, please estimate the total pressure immediately after explosion if the temperature was 500 degrees celcius. [Hint: the gases at 25 degrees celcius and 500 degrees celcius are different!]C(CH2ONO2)4(s) --> 2CO(g) + 4H2O(g) + 2N2(g) + 3CO2(g)
