temperature. They heat identical sealed glass flasks of air, to be considered as an ideal

gas, in an oil bath. The flasks are heated from 300k to 400k The pressure in flask A

rises from atmospheric pressure, p0, as expected, but the pressure in flask B remains at

p0 because the rubber bung is defective and air leaks out of the flask.
