We're being asked to determine the number of balloons that can be inflated to a pressure of 1.00 atm
Recall that the ideal gas law is:
The pressure and volume of a gas are related to the number of moles, gas constant and temperature. The value nRT is constant.
A 16.0 -L tank is filled with helium gas at a pressure of 105 atm .
How many balloons (each 2.00 L) can be inflated to a pressure of 1.00 atm, assuming that the temperature remains constant and that the tank cannot be emptied below 1.00 atm?
