Part A The final pressure can be calculated using the formula of Gay-Lussac’s gas law converting the values of temperature to SI units T1 = 360.15 K; T2 = 223.15 K;
P2=T2P1/T1
P2 = 223.15x1.20/360.15 = 0.744 atm OR 121590 Pa
Part B. Using the same law and the values to the SI units
P1 = 103991 Pa; T2 = 303.15 K; T1 = 223.15 K;
P2 = 303.15x103991/223.15 = 141273 Pa
