Unformatted text preview: T2 TI T2 T 2 V I (359 K)(3.8 L) = 4.9L V?=-=-Tl 278K Solving for V 2 : Reality Check: Is the answer sensible? In this case the temperature increased (at constant pressure), so the volume should increase. Thus the answer makes sense. SEE EXERCISES 5.55 AND 5.57 The problem in Example 5.8 could be described as a Charles's law problem, whereas the problem in Example 5.7 might be called a Boyle's law problem. In both cases, how-ever, we started with the ideal gas law. The real advantage of using the ideal gas law is that it applies to virtually any problem dealing with gases and is easy to remember....
