# For each of the following sets of pressure/volume data, calculate the missing quantity. Assume that the temperature and the amount 0f gas remain constant. V = 53.2 mL at 785 mm Hg; V = ? mL at 700 mm Hg. V = 2.25 L at 1.67 atm; V = 2.00 L at ? atm. V = 5.62 L at 695 mm Hg; V = ? L at 1.51 atm

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The volume should be calculated on the basis of given information at constant temperature.

Concept Introduction:

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

It expresses as; P1 V1 = P2 V2.

Explanation

Given information:

P1 = 785 mm Hg, V1 = 53.2 mL

P2 = 700 mm Hg,

The mathematical expression of Boyle’s law is;

P1 V1 = P2 V2 (1)

Plug in the given values in equation (1)

785 mmHg × 53

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The pressure should be calculated on the basis of given information at constant temperature.

Concept Introduction:

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

It expresses as; P1 V1 = P2 V2.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

The volume should be calculated on the basis of given information at constant temperature.

Concept Introduction:

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

It expresses as; P1 V1 = P2 V2.
