For ideal gas law word problems, it is beneficial to present the general ideal gas law equation
where: •P1 = Initial Pressure •V1 = Initial Volume •T1 = Initial Temperature •P2 = Final Pressure •V2 = Final Volume •T2 = Final Temperature
An ideal gas possesses an initial pressure of 200 Newtons per square meter at a temperature of 1000 Kelvin. While holding the volume constant, the temperature is decreased to 400 Kelvin. What is the resultant pressure?
Ten liters of an ideal gas possess an initial pressure of 100 Newtons per square meter at a temperature of 400 Kelvin. If the volume is decreased to five liters while raising the temperature to 600 Kelvin, what is the resultant pressure?
