# A 3.6 mole sample of methane gas is kept in a 1.50 liter container at a temperature of 100°C. What is the pressure of the gas?

##### 1 Answer

I get

#### Explanation:

We use the ideal gas law, which states that,

#P# is the pressure

#V# is the volume in liters (for this case)

#n# is the number of moles of the substance

#R# is the ideal gas constant, which varies

#T# is the temperature in Kelvin

Since we need to find pressure, we can rearrange the equation into:

Now, we need to convert the temperature into Kelvin. We know that

Since our temperature is in

And so, we find that the pressure is:
