Homework Help: Chemistry Help - Using the Gas Laws

  1. Oct 1, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    This figure (file attached) shows a container that is sealed at the top by a movable piston. Inside the container is a ideal gas at 1.00 atm, 20.0 degrees Celsius, and 1.00 L.

    The gas sample has now returned to its original state of 1.00 atm, 20.0 degrees Celsius and 1.00 L. What will the pressure become if the temperature of the gas is raised to 200.0degrees celsius and the piston is not allowed to move?

    2. Relevant equations

    Boyle's Law P_1V_1 = P_2V_2
    Charles' Law V_1/T_1 = V_2/T_2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Okay, in order for the piston not to move, this means that the volume must remain at 1.00 L. What I don't know what to do is how to relate temperature and pressure to solve for the final pressure.
