A container with a volume of #7 L# contains a gas with a temperature of #120^o K#. If the temperature of the gas changes to #360 ^o K# without any change in pressure, what must the container's new volume be?
The new volume,
This is an example of Charles' law, which states that the volume of a given amount of a gas kept at constant pressure varies directly with the temperature in Kelvins. This means that if the volume increases, so will the temperature, and vice versa. The equation used to solve Boyle's law problems is
Rearrange the equation to isolate
