# Answer to Question #25547 in Physical Chemistry for David

Question #25547

The volume of a gas is 400.0 mL when the pressure is 1.00 atm. At the same temperature, what is the pressure at which the volume of the gas is 2.0L?

Expert's answer

P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2

If one of these values is not given then it is considered a constant and you just leave that variable out of the equation.

PV=nRT is used when you are working the # of moles or grams. n is the # of moles so if given grams you must convert to moles before you begin.

STP (standard temperature and pressure) P= 1atm ,T= 273K, R= 0.08206 L-atm / mol-K

P1V1= P2V2

P2 =P1V1/V2 =1 *0.4 / 2 = 0.2 atm
