A cylinder containing 15L of helium gas at a pressure of 165 atm is to be used to fill party balloons. Each balloon must be filled to a volume of 2L at a pressure of 1.1 atm. What is the max number of balloons that can be inflated? Assume that the gas in the cylinder is at the same as the inflated balloon. (The empty cylinder will still contain helium at 1.1atm)

  1. I assume that the next to last sentence should read, "Assume that the gas in the cylinder AT THE END is at the same PRESSURE as the inflated balloons.
    1. Calculate mols gas in the cylinder initally using PV = nRT. No T is listed so use any T (in kelvin) but always use the same T.

    2. Calculate mols gas in the cylinder using PV = nRT. P will be 1.1 atm and T will be the same T used in step 1.

    3. Subtract total mols - mols at the end to find mols gas available to fill balloons.

    4. Calculate moles required to fill a single balloon from PV = nRT.

    5. Now calculate the number of balloons that can be filled. Remember that if you get a fraction to round to the lower number.

    Post your work if you get stuck.
