How do you convert 350.0 mL at 740.0 mm of Hg to its new volume at standard pressure?

2 Answers

Unlike gases, liquids don't compress appreciably, so the volume will be the same.

Answer:

We use Boyle's law: #P_1V_1=P_2V_2#, temperature and amount of gas constant. We would expect the volume to decrease slightly.

Explanation:

Given the relationship, #V_2=(P_2V_1)/P_1#, we can use non-standard units of pressure and volume, such as #mL#, and #mm# #Hg#. Ordinarily, we would have to convert these units into standard forms.

#V_2 = (740/760)xx350*mL# #=# #??# #mL#
