Determine which law is appropriate for solving the following problem. What temperature will 215 mL of a gas at 20 C and 1 atm pressure attain when it is subject to 15 atm of pressure?
We must use the "combined gas law"
In this case, the volume is kept constant, so
We can therefore cancel the terms from the equation:
Let's divide both sides of the equation by
Therefore, the gas will attain a temperature of
