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

Example 1

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?

Example 2

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?

Solution 2
