A 1.25-g sample of CO2 is contained in a 750.-mL flask at 22.5 °C. What is the pressure of the gas?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The pressure of gas should be calculated using the given temperature, amount of gas and volume.

Concept Introduction:

Different laws have been put forward to introduce properties of gases:

Boyle’s law:

At fixed temperature, the volume of a fixed amount of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure exerted by the gas.

P1V(n,Twillbeconstant)

Charles’s law: States that volume is directly proportional to temperature when the gas is held

at constant pressure and number of molecules.

VT

General Gas Law: Combining Charles’s law and Boyle’s law we get the General gas law or combined gas law.

P1V1T1=P2V2T2

• To relate the amount of gas and the volume.
• VnatconstantTandP

Combining all these together ideal gas law is introduced:

PV=nRT

Explanation

Ideal gas law: PV=nRT

Given data:

P=?T=22.5°C=22.5+273=295.5KV=750ml=0.75Lm=1.25g

In-order to calculate the number of moles we can use the equation:
