# Boyles law 1. A container holds 300 mL of CO2 at 30 degrees C and 742 torr.

What will be the volume of the CO2 if the pressure is increased to 759 torr? Given: P1= 742 torr P2= 759 torr V1= 300 mL V2= ? 2. A balloon contains 7.5 L of He. The pressure is reduced to 2.00 atm and the balloon expands to occupy a volume of 26.5 L. What was the initial pressure exerted on the balloon? Given : P1= ? P2= 3.00 atm V1= 7.5 L V2= 26.5 L P1V1 = P2V2 P1 = P2V2/V1 3. 500 mL of chlorine under a pressure of 680. mm Hg are placed in a container under a pressure of 1215 mm Hg. The temperature remains constant at 296 K. What is the volume of the container in liter? P1 = 680. mm P2 = 1210 mm V1 = 352 mL V2 = ? P1V1 = P2V2 V2 = P1V1/P2 Charles Law 1. A container holds 50.0 mL of nitrogen at 25 C and a pressure of 736 mm Hg. What will be its volume if the temperature increases by 35 C? P1 = 736 mm Hg P2 = 736 mm Hg V1 = 50.0 mL V2 = ? T1 = 25 C + 273 = 298 K T2 = 25 C + 35 C + 273 = 333 K V1/ T1 = V2/T2 V2 = V1 x T2/T1

2. A sample of oxygen occupies a volume of 1.6 L at 91C. What will be the temperature when the volume of oxygen is
reduced to 1.2 L? Solution: V1 = 1.6 L V2 = 1.2 L T1 = (91C + 273) K = 364 K T2 = ? Now, according to Charles law V1/T1 = V2/T2 Substituting the values, 1.6 L / 364 K = 1.2 L / T2 T2 = 1.2 L x 364 K / 1.6 L
