30cm3 of oxygen at 10 atm pressure is placed in a 20cm3 container. Calculate the new pressure if temperature is kept constant.
A. 6.7 atm
B. 15.0 atm
C. 60.0 atm
D. 66.0 atm
In this problem, the volume and pressure changed, but the temperature is constant. This implies that Boyle’s law is applicable:
Now for the right answer to the above question:
- Option A is incorrect.
- Option B is correct.
- C is incorrect.
- D is not the correct answer.
You may please note these/this:
- At constant temperature, Boyles law is used to solve for the new or initial values of changing volume and pressure.
