🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Castaneda's class at UMICH.

# Solution: A sample of gas (24.2 g) initially at 3.00 atm was compressed from 8.00 L to 2.00 L at constant temperature. After the compression, the gas pressure was  ________   atm.a)  4.00b) 8.00c) 12.0d) 16.0e) 2.00

###### Problem

A sample of gas (24.2 g) initially at 3.00 atm was compressed from 8.00 L to 2.00 L at constant temperature. After the compression, the gas pressure was  ________   atm.

a)  4.00

b) 8.00

c) 12.0

d) 16.0

e) 2.00

###### Solution

A sample of gas (24.2 g) initially at 3.00 atm was compressed from 8.00 L to 2.00 L at a constant temperature. We’re being asked to determine the pressure of the gas after compression.

Recall that the ideal gas law is:

$\overline{){\mathbf{PV}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{nRT}}}$

The pressure and volume of a gas are related to the number of moles, gas constant and temperatureThe value nRT is constant
