A container has a volume of #18 L# and holds #15 mol# of gas. If the container is compressed such that its new volume is #8 L#, how many moles of gas must be released to maintain a constant temperature and pressure?
6.67 moles of gas must be released.
The answer can be determined by using Avogadro's law:
The number 1 represents the initial conditions and the number 2 represents the final conditions.
