Word Problems: Ideal Gas Law
For ideal gas law word problems, it is beneficial to present the general ideal gas law equation:
where:
P
_{1}
= Initial Pressure
V
_{1}
= Initial Volume
T
_{1}
= Initial Temperature
P
_{2}
= Final Pressure
V
_{2}
= Final Volume
T
_{2}
= Final Temperature
Example #1
:
An ideal gas possesses an initial pressure of 200 Newtons per square meter at a temperature of 1000 Kelvin. While holding the volume constant, the temperature is decreased to 400 Kelvin. What is the resultant pressure?
Solution #1
:
Example #2
:
Ten liters of an ideal gas possess an initial pressure of 100 Newtons per square meter at a temperature of 400 Kelvin. If the volume is decreased to five liters while raising the temperature to 600 Kelvin, what is the resultant pressure?
Solution #2
