# For each of the following sets of pressure/volume data, calculate the new volume of the gas sample after the pressure change is, made. Assume that the temperature and the amount of gas remain the same.msp;  a . V =  125 mL at 755 mm Hg ; V =   2 mL at 78 0  mm Hg b . V =  223 mL at 1 .0 8 atm ; V =   2 mL at  0. 951 atm c . V =  3 .0 2 L at 1 0 3 kPa ; V =   2 L at 121 kPa

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The new volume with the given conditions of pressure should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Boyle’s law states that at constant temperature and amount of gas, the pressure of gas is inversely proportional to volume.

It can be expressed as: P1 V1 = P2 V2.

Explanation

Given information:

P1 = 755 mm Hg, V1 = 125 mL

P2 = 780 mm Hg,

Boyle’s law can be expressed as;

P1 V1 = P2 V2 (1)

Plug in the given values in equation (1)

755 mmHg × 125 mL  = 780 mmHg × V2

V2=  755

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The new volume with the given conditions of pressure should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Boyle’s law states that at constant temperature and amount of gas, the pressure of gas is inversely proportional to volume.

It can be expressed as: P1 V1 = P2 V2.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

The new volume with the given conditions of pressure should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Boyle’s law states that at constant temperature and amount of gas, the pressure of gas is inversely proportional to volume.

It can be expressed as: P1 V1 = P2 V2.
