Find the temperature

pV=nRT

T = p*V/(n*R)

T = 1 atm * 0.5 liters / (2 moles * .08206 L atm K^-1 * mol^-1)

T = 3.04 K

Did I do that problem correctly? That temperature seems unrealistically low.

**DrBob222**, Friday, February 6, 2009 at 11:45amYes, that's correct. Note that

T = p*v/(n*R)

so T = 273 K when p is 1 atm, v is 22.4 L, and n = 1. So you have reduced v from 22.4 to 0.5 AND you have reduced the number even more by doubling the denominator.
