A 3.0 L container holds a sample of hydrogen gas at 300 K and 101.5 kPa. If the pressure increases to 305 kPa and the volume remains constant, what will the temperature be?

  • Hi, thank you for postingyour question here at Brainly.

    This problem can be solved by using Charles' Law when volume is kept constant. Remember that the ideal gas equation is: PV=nRT. So when V is constant, it gets lumped with nR such that P/T = V/nR = k. Thus,

    P1/T1 = P2/T2
    (101.5 kPa)/(300K) = (305 kPa)/T2
    T2 = 901.5 K
