# A rigid plastic container holds gas 0.9 pressure when the atmtemperature is 22.0°C. How much more pressure will the gas exert if the temperature raised to 44.6°C?

Well, I assume you got units of atmosphere.....

#### Explanation:

And we use the $\text{combined gas Law}$.....${P}_{1} / {T}_{1} = {P}_{2} / {T}_{2}$, where $\text{VOLUME}$ is the same in both instances.

${P}_{2} = {P}_{1} / {T}_{1} \times {T}_{2}$

$= \frac{0.9 \cdot a t m}{295 \cdot K} \times 317.6 \cdot K$; note that units of absolute temperature are used.....$0 \cdot K \equiv - 273.15$ ""^@C.

${P}_{2} \cong 1 \cdot a t m$........
