(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have been given measurements of Ptp and corresponding values of P for mercury. My task is to calculate the idea-gas temperature Tg of the material to five significant figures.

Ptp| 1000.0|750.00|500.00|250.00|

P |1535.3 |1151.6| 767.82| 383.95|

2. Relevant equations

Tg(K) = 273.16 lim Pt ->0 (P/Ptp)

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok i have read up on the ideal gas temperature scale, and sort of grasp it. I have graphed the table and got and equations relating the line to be:

P = 1.5351x +0.21

I dont believe that this is the right way to go about this problem. I am just asking for some direction, as i have hit a wall.

Thanks Zac
