The temperature of a fixed mass of gas in a rigid container is raised from 28.00 degrees Celsius to 88.00 degrees Celsius. The initial pressure was 1000 mmHg. What is the new pressure, after heating?
The final pressure is
This is an example of Gay Lussac's temperature-pressure gas law , which states that the pressure of a gas held at constant volume, is directly proportional to the temperature in Kelvins.
The equation for this law is:
