Answer to Question #31461 in Inorganic Chemistry for Shay
A 2.50L sample of carbon monoxide gas has a pressure of 835mmHg. Assuming the temperature remains constant, what is the final pressure if the volume is changed to 6.35L?
Carbon monoxide gas that has a pressure of 835 mm Hg will be 908.38764 Pa. Using the Ideal Gas equation: PV = nRT, from this: Where: P - pressure V - volume At the T - const: P1V1 = P2V2, from this equiation: P2 = P1*V1/(V2) P2 = 908.38764 Pa x 2.5 L/(6.35 L) P2 = 2270.95/6.35 P2 = 357.63 Pa
