Solution: A gas-filled weather balloon with a volume of 65.0 L is released at sea-level conditions of 745 torr and 25°C. The balloon can expand to a maximum volume of 835 L. When the balloon rises to an altitude at which the temperature is −5°C and the pressure is 0.066 atm, will it have expanded to its maximum volume?

Problem

A gas-filled weather balloon with a volume of 65.0 L is released at sea-level conditions of 745 torr and 25°C. The balloon can expand to a maximum volume of 835 L. When the balloon rises to an altitude at which the temperature is −5°C and the pressure is 0.066 atm, will it have expanded to its maximum volume?

Solution

Assuming that the gas is ideal and the number of gaseous moles inside the balloon does not change, the change in volume of gas can be determined using the combined gas law.

 

Where P is pressure

           V is volume

           T is temperature in K
