## A sample of CO2 gas has a pressure of 56.5 mm Hg in a 125-mL flask. The sample is transferred to a new flask, where it has a pressure of 62.3 mm Hg at the same temperature. What is the volume of the new flask?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The volume of a gas in the new flask should be calculated, the initial volume and pressures are given.

Concept Introduction:

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)pv=constantp1v1=p2v2

### Explanation of Solution

The volume of the gas inside the flask using the concept of Boyle’s law can be calculated as,

Given:

V1=125mlP1=56.5mmHgP2=62.3mmHgV2=?

From Boyle’s law:

p1v1=p
