Homework Help: Need help on a Chem Question

  1. Oct 16, 2006 #1
    Question: A sample of hydrogen gas, collected at 100 C and 1.0 atm., has a volume of 350 ml (0.350 lit.). What will be the pressure after it is transferred to a 4.0 lit. flask and cooled to 25 C? (temp must be in degrees of Kelvin)

    I had assumed using the formula V2 = P1 X V1 / P2 but i am not getting anything that makes sense. I think its two formulas needed but am not sure. Any assistance would be greatly apperciated

    Go to your favorite search engine and type in "combined gas law".

    Think that will help.

    Best of health.

    [tex] pV = nRT [/tex]. Look at the values given. Which ones are being kept constant?

    Thanks! That did the trick alright :biggrin:

    Can someone verify this is correct?

    P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2
    (1.0atm)(.35lit)/(373K) = P(4.0lit)/(298K)
    (104.3) = (1492)P
    .070atm = P

    thats correct
