Question

A cylinder is filled with 10.0 L of gas and a piston is put into it. The initial pressure of the gas is measured to be 273. kPa.

The piston is now pulled up, expanding the gas, until the gas has a final volume of 50.0 L. Calculate the final pressure of the gas. Be sure your answer has the

correct number of significant digits.

## Answers ( )

P2 = 54.6 kPa

Explanation:Given:

V1 = 10.0 L. V2 = 50.0 L

P1 = 273 kPa. P2 = ?

We can use Boyle’s law to solve this problem.

P1V1 = P2V2

Solving for P2,

P2 = (V1/V2)P1

= (10.0 L/50.0 L)(273 kPa)

= 54.6 kPa
