If chlorine gas has a volume of 465mL at 50°C ,what is the volume if the temperature decreases to 30°C?
To answer this question, we will need to assume the following:
- Chlorine gas is behaving ideally, so we can use the ideal gas law:
- During the process, the pressure is remaining constant.
Since we are heating the ballon, the number of mole is not changing and therefore,
Therefore, chlorine will occupy a volume of
