A gas has a volume of 590 mL At a temperature of -55.0 degrees celsius. What volume will the gas occupy at 30.0 degrees celsius? show your work.
I'm just confused as to how to start this and the steps required. I'm not asking for an answer, but rather some steps or formulas needed. Thanks!
the volume is directly related to the absolute (Kelvin) temperature ... also called Charles' Law
... Kelvin temp = Celsius temp + 273
final volume = initial volume * [(final Kelvin temp) / (initial Kelvin temp)]
(V1/T1) = (V2/T2)
Remember T must be in kelvin.
kelvin = 2734.15 + degreed C
Post your work if you get stuck.
