A sample of a gas occupies #1.40 * 10^3# mL at 25°C and 760 mmHg. What volume will it occupy at the same temperature and 380 mmHg?

1 Answer

Answer:

#V = 2.8L#

Explanation:

On its initial state, the gas
- occupies #1.4L#
- is on a system of #298.15k#, and
- #1 atm#

And on its second state,
- #x L#
- #298.15K#
- #380/760 atm#

#(P_0V_0)/T_0 = (PV)/T#,

Solve for V.

#V = 2.8L#

The answer is obtainable through Boyle's Law - when temperature is held constant, there exists an inverse correlation factor between the state functions of pressure and volume.
