The gas inside of a container exerts #18 Pa# of pressure and is at a temperature of #450 ^o K#. If the pressure in the container changes to #25 Pa# with no change in the container's volume, what is the new temperature of the gas?
The new temperature will be
This is an example of Guy-Lussac's law which states that the pressure of a given amount of gas held at constant volume is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature. So if the pressure increases, so will the temperature and vice versa.
The equation is:
Organize the data.
Rearrange the equation to isolate
