Problem: A 1-L sample of CO initially at STP is heated to 546 K, and its volume is increased to 2 L.(a) What effect do these changes have on the number of collisions of the molecules of the gas per unit area of the container wall?

FREE Expert Solution
  • The first conditions of CO at STP appears to be

V1 = 1L; P= 1 atm; T1 = 273.15 K

while the second conditions were 

V2 = 2L; P2 = 1 atm (constant); T2 = 546 K
