A balloon filled with oxygen gas occupies a volume of 5.5 L at 25°C. What volume will the gas occupy at 100.0 °C?
To answer this question, we will need to assume the following:
- Oxygen is behaving ideally, so we can use the ideal gas law:
- During the process, the pressure is remaining constant.
Since we are heating the ballon, the number of mole is not changing and therefore,
Therefore, oxygen will occupy a volume of
