plz teach me the method also

  • chemistry -

    (P1/T1) = (P2/T2)
    Substitute into the equation and solve for the one unknown. Remember T must be in kelvin.

    m not getting the right answer am getting a different ans

  • chemistry -

    Post your work and I'll find the error,

  • chemistry -

    6/27 = p1/-73 ths are the values which m getting frm question bt stil the last ans is like 438 which is obviously wrong

  • chemistry -

    Re-read my first response. Didn't I say to remember T must be in kelvin? That was not a typing exercise for me. Students often forget to change celsius to kelvin; I almost always write that as a reminder. You used celsius, not kelvin. You can't get the right answer without using kelvin for T.
    Do you know how to convert T from C to K?
    K = C + 273.
