Key: 10. What is the pressure inside an 11 L balloon which contains 2 moles of nitrogen gas at standard temperature? a. 1atm b. 2atm c. 3atm d. 4atm e. 5atm f. 6atm g. 7atm Consider the ideal gas law when rearranged as follows: P = (nRT)/V. 1 mole of ideal gas at standard T occupies 22.4 L if its pressure is 1 atm. If the volume is half, as in this problem, and the number of moles is doubled, we are left with the same pressure we started with. To be sure,

Unformatted text preview: just plug in the variables into the ideal gas law: P = (nRT)/V = [(2mol)(0.82)(273)]/11L = 4atm. Dont forget that standard temperature = 273K (or 0 C) and standard pressure = 1atm. When standard temperature and pressure are both observed, then this condition is abbreviated STP....
