What is the pressure in torr that a 0.44-g sample of carbon dioxide gas will exert at a temperature of 46.2°C when it occupies a volume of 5.00 L?
To solve this problem we will use the ideal gas law equation:
To find pressure we divided both sides by
First we need to convert the temperature to K so we add
Now we also need to find the number of moles first we find the molar mass of
Now we have:
Let's plug it in:
To find the torr you multiply:
