Expert Answer

Step 1

Suppose you have a fixed amount of an ideal gas at a constant volume. If the pressure of the gas is doubled while the volume is held constant, the new temperature is to be determined.

Step 2

Ideal gas law states that-

PV = nRT

Where

P- Pressure of the gas

V- Volume occupied by the gas

n- Moles of the gas

R- Gas constant

Step 3

Now, n and V of a gas remain constant and P is doubl...
