In a fit of boredom, a chemistry teaching
assistant swallows a small piece of solid dry ice (CO2). The 8.9 g of dry ice are converted very quickly into gas at 311 K. Assuming the TA’s stomach has a volume of 1.5 L, what pressure is exerted on his stomach?

  • AP Chemistry -

    n = grams/molar mass
    Use PV = nRT
    Solve for P in atm.
