Find the growth of temperature of the gas

  1. May 23, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A mass of 3 mole gas is heated in a constant pressure of 1.5 atm, expanding from 40 litre to 60 litre. Find the temperature growth.

    2. Relevant equations
    V1/V2=T1/T2.
    3. The attempt at a solution
    I thought to write V1/V2=T1/T2. But I don't know T1. The answer is 121 K in my book.

    Don't you know the ideal gas equation? Can you write it down? From this, given P, V, and N, you should be able to calculate T.

    pV=nRT
    Thanks a lot
