When the temperature of a gas in a vessel is increased by 1C then the pressure is increased by 0.5%. what will be its initial temperature?

  • Physics(12th grade) -

    P V = n R T
    assume V constant
    P = (nR/V) T
    dP = (nR/V) dT
    dP/P = (nR/V) dT/P = dT/T
    but dP/P = .005
    so
    .005 = 1/T
    T = 200
