A container has a volume of #48 L# and holds #12 mol# of gas. If the container is compressed such that its new volume is #18 L#, how many moles of gas must be released to maintain a constant temperature and pressure?
Let's use Avogadro's law to calculate the answer:
The number 1 represents the initial conditions and the number 2 represents the final conditions.
Identify your known and unknown variables:
Rearrange the equation to solve for the final number of moles:
Plug in your given values to obtain the final number of moles:
