A sample of nitrogen gas has a volume of 32.4 L at 20°C. The gas is heated to 220°C at constant pressure. What is the final volume of nitrogen?
The volume of nitrogen gas at 493 K will be 54.5 L.
This is an example of Charles' law which states that the volume of a gas held at constant pressure is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature. The equation for Charles' law is
Rearrange the equation to isolate
