I am not sure what equations to use for this problem....

**Damon**, Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 10:00pmPV=nRT

p dV + V dp = n R dT

p is constant here so

p dV = n R dT

work = integral p dV = nR dT

p(V2-V1) = n R (T2-T1)

so 15 = n R (T2-T1)

**Katy**, Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 10:06pmdoesnt that give me an answer in moles? ...is there a way to convert moles to mg?

**Katy**, Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 10:12pmso i got the answer to be .01804 moles

and i know one mole of helium is 4.03 g

do i just multiply the two together? and then divide by 10000 to convert g to mg?

**Katy**, Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 10:14pmnever mind. I made a silly error.

i got .01804 moles...multiplied that times 4.03grams and then multiplied that times 1000 and got 72.7mg.

got it! thanks so much!

**?Unknown?**, Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 9:19pmwhat are we solving for in this equation?? 15 = n R (T2-T1)

we know n, we know R, we know t1 and t2...so what do we solve for?
