Given a jar of gas (fixed volume and pressure) at 273.15K, the temperature is lowered to 0K, what happens to the volume?

The volume remains the same


Charles' Law, or the law of volumes, was found in 1787 by Jacques Charles. It states that, for a given mass of an ideal gas at constant pressure, the volume is directly proportional to its absolute temperature, assuming in a closed system.

As a mathematical equation, Charles' Law is written as

Now solve;
So since you haven't provided a volume initial i cant give u the exact number

But we do know that with a decrease in temp. the volume will decrease and vice versa

But here there is no piston to keep the volume down
