Textbook Problem

One mole of oxygen gas is at a pressure of 6.00 atm and a temperature of 27.0°C. (a) If the gas is heated at constant volume until the pressure triples, what is the final temperature? (b) If the gas is heated so that both the pressure and volume are doubled, what is the final temperature?

(a)

To determine
The final temperature ( Tf ).

Explanation

Given info: Initial temperature is Ti=27οC . The final pressure ( Pf ) is three times the initial pressure ( Pi ).

At constant volume,

TfTi=PfPi

On Re-arranging,

Tf=Ti(PfPi)

Substitute 27οC for Ti and 3Pi for Pf in the above equation to get Tf

(b)

To determine
The final temperature ( Tf ) when volume and pressure are doubled.
