A sample of gas in a closed container at a
temperature of 83C and a pressure of 9 atm
is heated to 259C. What pressure does the
gas exert at the higher temperature?
Answer in units of atm

  • chemistry -

    (P1/T1) = (P2/T2)
    Remember T must be in kelvin.

  • chemistry -

    i got 6.023

  • chemistry -

    I don't think so.
    273 + 83 = 356K
    273 + 259 = 532K

    (9/56) = (P2/532)
    P2 = not 6.023. More like 13.44 atm rounded to the correct number of significant figures.
