Ideal gas

  1. Apr 27, 2004 #1
    Given: R=8.31451 J/(K*mol)

    Two moles of helium gas initially at 187 K and 0.33 atm are compressed isothermally to 0.57 atm.
    Find the final volume of the gas. Assume the helium to behave as an ideal gas. Answer in units of m^3.

    I've tried this many many times and i keep getting 5.455 which is not right. can someone please help? Thanks
