Answer:

1027.9 mL

Explanation:

Formula P1 x V1 / T1 = P2 x V2 / T2

Fill in what you know

Pressure is constant so no need to put that in making the formula
V1 / T1 = V2 / T2

Voulme 1= 950 mL
Volume 2= ?
Temperature 1 = 25 C
Temperature 2 = 50 C

  1. Convert your temperature to Kelvin
    C+273=K
    Temperature 1 = 25 C + 273 = 298 K
    Temperature 2 = 50 C + 273 = 323 K

  2. Plug in to the Formula
    950 mL/298 K = ? / 323 K

  3. Rearrange the formula to make one to solve for what is missing.
    To get 323 K out of the denominator multiply by it.
    Making it
    950 mL x 323 K / 298 K = ?

  4. Plug it in
    950 mL x 323 K / 298 K = 1027.9 mL
