Homework Help: Ideal Gas Law Question

  1. Oct 13, 2008 #1
    A sealed balloon is filled with 1.00 L of He gas at 23 deg C and 1.00 atm. The balloon rises to a point in the atmosphere where the pressure is 220 torr and the temperature is -31 deg C. What is the final volume of the balloon after it reaches an altitude where the pressure is 220 torr?

    If I should use the Ideal Gas Law, Pv= nRT, how do I find the number of moles?

    You are not asked for the number of moles. (Hint: You don't need it either.)
