Problem: A quantity of N2 gas originally held at 5.24 atm pressure in a 1.20 -L container at 26 oC is transferred to a 14.5 -L container at 20 oC. A quantity of O2 gas originally at 5.26 atm and 26 oC in a 5.20 -L container is transferred to this same container.What is the total pressure in the new container?

We are asked to calculate the total pressure of the system when:


A quantity of N2 gas originally held at 5.24 atm pressure in a 1.20 -L container at 26 oC is transferred to a 14.5 -L container at 20 oC. A quantity of O2 gas originally at 5.26 atm and 26 oin a 5.20 -L container is transferred to this same container.


For this, we need to proceed as follows:

Step 1. Determine the final pressure of N2 gas.

Step 2. Determine the final pressure of O2 gas.

Step 3. Determine the total pressure of the system, considering that there is no reaction.
