Boyle’s Law: Charles’ Law: Combined
Gas Law: Ideal Gas Law:
What is “R” (include appropriate units)?
What is a good sequence to tackle sub-problems?
1. A beach ball contains 30 liters of air
at 1 atm of pressure. Then someone sits on it, crushing it to one
third its volume. What happens to the pressure ?
2. I put an empty two liter bottle of soda
back in my fridge the other day and it collapsed in on itself. It
had been sitting on the countertop at room temperature (25 C). I
have the refrigerator set to 10 C. What volume did the bottle shrink
3. On Venus the temperature can reach up
to 500K and the atmospheric pressure is typically around 90 times that
of the Earth’s. What would happen to a space-age, heat-resistant
balloon which was initially 1.0 liter in volume on Earth at 25 C?
4. How much pressure is left in an empty
0.5 L hairspray bottle which contains 3.5 moles of air at room temperature?
