Sample Problem 8.3 Calculating Volume When Pressure Changes When Whitney had her asthma attack, oxygen was delivered through a face mask. The gauge on a 12-L tank of compressed oxygen reads 3800 mmHg. How many liters would this same gas occupy at a pressure of 0.75 atm when temperature and amount of gas do not change? Solution Step 1 Organize the data in a table of initial and final conditions. To match the units for the initial and final

pressures, we can convert either atm to mmHg or mmHg to atm. General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life, 5/e Karen C. Timberlake 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Sample Problem 8.3 Calculating Volume When Pressure Changes Continued We place the gas data using units of mmHg for pressure and liters for volume in a table. (We could have both pressures in units of atm as well.) The properties that do not change, which are temperature and amount of gas, are shown below the table. We know that pressure decreases, and can predict that the volume increases. Factors that remain constant: T and n Step 2 Rearrange the gas law equation to solve for the unknown quantity. For a PV relationship, we use Boyles law and solve for V2 by dividing both sides by P2. According to Boyles law, a decrease in the pressure will cause an increase in the volume when T and n remain constant.

Sample Problem 8.4 Calculating Volume When Temperature Changes Helium gas is used to inflate the abdomen during laparoscopic surgery. A sample of helium gas has a volume of 5.40 L and a temperature of 15 C. What is the final volume, in liters, of the gas if the temperature has been increased to 42 C at constant pressure and amount of gas? Solution Step 1 Organize the data in a table of initial and final conditions. The properties that change, which are the temperature and volume, are listed in the following table. The properties that do not change, which are pressure and amount of gas, are shown below the table. When the temperature is given in degrees Celsius, it must be changed to kelvins. Because we know the initial and final temperatures of the gas, we know that the temperature increases. Thus, we can predict that the volume increases. T1 = 15 C + 273 = 288 K

T2 = 42 C + 273 = 315 K Factors that remain constant: P and n Step 2 Rearrange the gas law equation to solve for the unknown quantity. In this problem, we want to know the final volume (V2) when the temperature increases. Using Charless law, we solve for V2 by multiplying both sides by T2.

Sample Problem 8.5 Calculating Pressure When Temperature Changes Home oxygen tanks, which provide an oxygen-rich environment, can be dangerous if they are heated, because they can explode. Suppose an oxygen tank has a pressure of 120 atm at a room temperature of 25 C. If a fire in the room causes the temperature of the gas inside the oxygen tank to reach 402 C, what will be its pressure in atmospheres? The oxygen tank may rupture if the pressure inside exceeds 180 atm. Would you expect

it to rupture? Solution Step 1 Organize the data in a table of initial and final conditions. We list the properties that change, which are the pressure and temperature, in a table. The properties that do not change, which are volume and amount of gas, are shown below the table. The temperatures given in degrees Celsius must be changed to kelvins. Because we know the initial and final temperatures of the gas, we know that the temperature increases. Thus, we can predict that the pressure increases. T1 = 25 C + 273 = 298 K T2 = 402 C + 273 = 675 K Factors that remain constant: V and n General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life, 5/e Karen C.

Using Gay-Lussacs law, we can solve for P2 by multiplying both sides by T2. Step 3 Substitute values into the gas law equation and calculate. When we substitute in the values, we see that the ratio of the temperatures (temperature factor), is greater than 1, which increases pressure as predicted in Step 1. Because the calculated pressure of 270 atm of the gas exceeds the limit of 180 atm, we would expect the oxygen tank to rupture.
