TL;DR Summary
Thermal expansion of neon i need help.
If neon is stored at 40 psi . 65 degrees fahrenheit. How do i calculate the psi in a closed system when the container is heated.

Is this question for schoolwork?

Not in the slightest. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Volume is fixed.
P1 / T1 = P2 / T2 ;
where Temperatures are absolute.
What is stopping you?

Does neon behave as an ideal gas at this temperature and pressure?

Im dislexic id the main problem. Im great at doing. But the reading gets me really bad. I dont know the equation i need to use to be completely honest. Most of my work comes from trial and error but with cost of equipment in this one i cant afford to just try till i succeed. And because of the thermal expansion of neon i can surely not afford to go over and detonate my container. To clarify i will be using thermal expansion to lift and drop a two ton wall weight with heating and cooling the neon

Thread closed temporarily for safety review by the Mentors...

After a Mentor discussion, this thread will remain closed (like the OP's previous thread about related projects).

@kelseytischler95 -- Please find a local Mentor who can help you with your projects and keep you (and others) safe. PF is not the place to ask for advice on dangerous activities that you do not yet have the experience to undertake safely.
