Homework Help: Ideal Gas Volume Question

  1. Jun 15, 2005 #1
    An Ideal Gas occupies a Volume of 6.00 L at STP. What is its Gauge pressure (in kPa) if the Volume is doubled and the Temperature is increased to 50.0 Degrees Celcius. I dont know where to begine as the question doesnt have a starting Temp, just that it was increased to 50 Degrees Celcius. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    STP stands for standard temperature and pressure. it is 0 degrees C and 1 atm.

    Do you have an equation for me that might help?

    The Ideal Gas Law should cover this.

    I have a really Sorry Book, I will try to find that in there. Thanks!

    The Ideal Gas law says in an Ideal Gas in a closed system the following relation always holds constant,

    [tex] PV = nRT [/tex]

    P = Pressure
    V = Volume
    n = number of moles
    R = The gas constant
    T = Temperature (KELVIN)
