Charles's Law states that at constant pressure, the volume of a fixed amount of gas varies directly with its temperature measured in degrees Kelvin. A gas has a volume of 250 mL at 300 K.

what is an equation for the relationship between volume and temperature?

asked by Angie
  1. Volume=constant*temperatureinK
    250ml=constant*300k
    constant = 250/300 mL/K

    equation then is
    Volume=(250/300 mL/K)*tempinK

  2. V = constant * T
    250 mL = constant * 300 K
    constant = 250 mL/300 K = .833... mL/K
    so
    V = .833 T
