# If the volume of the gas in a gas chamber is 500 mL at 277 K, what will be the volume of the gas in the chamber if the temperature is at 300 K?

The final volume is $= 541.5 m L$

#### Explanation:

Apply Charles' Law

$\text{Volume"/"Temperature" = "Constant}$ at $\text{constant pressure}$

${V}_{1} / {T}_{1} = {V}_{2} / {T}_{2}$

The initial volume is ${V}_{1} = 500 m L$

The initial temperature is ${T}_{1} = 277 K$

The final temperature is ${T}_{2} = 300 K$

The final volume is

${V}_{2} = {T}_{2} / {T}_{1} \cdot {V}_{1} = \frac{300}{277} \cdot 500 = 541.5 m L$
