Directions: Solve the following problems showing ALL work.
1) The temperature inside my refrigerator is about 4.00 Celsius. If I place a balloon in my fridge
that initially has a temperature of 220 C and a volume of 0.50 liters, what will be the volume of
the balloon when it is fully cooled by my refrigerator?
2) A man heats a balloon in the oven. If the balloon initially has a volume of 0.40 liters and a
temperature of 20. 0C, what will the volume of the balloon be after he heats it to a temperature
of 250 0C?
3) On hot days, you may have noticed that potato chip bags seem to “inflate”, even though they
have not been opened. If I have a 250 mL bag at a temperature of 19 0C, and I leave it in my car
which has a temperature of 60.00 C, what will the new volume of the bag be?
4) A soda bottle is flexible enough that the volume of the bottle can change even without opening
it. If you have an empty soda bottle (volume of 2.0 L) at room temperature (25 0C), what will
the new volume be if you put it in your freezer (-4.0 0C)?
5) Some students believe that teachers are full of hot air. If I inhale 2.2 liters of gas at a
temperature of 180 C and it heats to a temperature of 380 C in my lungs, what is the new volume
of the gas?

6) How hot will a 2.3 L balloon have to get to expand to a volume of 400. L? Assume that the
initial temperature of the balloon is 25 0C.
7) I have made a thermometer which measures temperature by the compressing and expanding
of gas in a piston. I have measured that at 100.0 0 C the volume of the piston is 20.0 L. What is
the temperature outside if the piston has a volume of 15 L? What would be appropriate
clothing for the weather?
8) A gas sample at 40.0C occupies a volume of 2.32 L. If the temperature is raised to 75.0C, what
will the volume be, assuming the pressure remains constant?
9) A gas at 89C occupies a volume of 0.67 L. At what Celsius temperature will the volume
increase to 1.12 L?
10) The Celsius temperature of a 3.00-L sample of gas is lowered from 80.0C to 30.0C. What will
be the resulting volume of this gas?
11) What is the volume of the air in a balloon that occupies 0.620 L at 25C if the temperature is
lowered to 0.00C?
12) Calculate the decrease in temperature when 2.00 L at 20.0 °C is compressed to 1.00 L.
13) 600.0 mL of air is at 20.0 °C. What is the volume at 60.0 °C?
14) A gas occupies 900.0 mL at a temperature of 27.0 °C. What is the volume at 132.0 °C?
15) What change in volume results if 60.0 mL of gas is cooled from 33.0 °C to 5.00 °C?

16) Given 300.0 mL of a gas at 17.0 °C. What is its volume at 10.0 °C?
17) Determine the pressure change when a constant volume of gas at 1.00 atm is heated from 20.0
˚C to 30.0 ˚C.
18) A container of gas is initially at 0.500 atm and 25 ˚C. What will the pressure be at 125 ˚C?
19) A gas container is initially at 47 mm Hg and 77 K (liquid nitrogen temperature.) What will the
pressure be when the container warms up to room temperature of 25 ˚C?
20) A gas thermometer measures temperature by measuring the pressure of a gas inside the fixed
volume container. A thermometer reads a pressure of 248 kPa at 0 ˚C. What is the
temperature when the thermometer reads a pressure of 345 kPa?
21) A gas is collected at 22.0 ˚C and 745.0 mm Hg. When the temperature is changed to 0 ˚C, what
is the resulting pressure?
22) A gas has a pressure of 699.0 mm Hg at 40.0 ˚C. What is the temperature at standard pressure
(1 atm = 760 mmHg)?
23) If a gas is cooled from 323.0 K to 273.15 K and volume is kept constant what final pressure
would result if the original pressure was 750.0 mm Hg?

24) The temperature of a sample of gas in a steel tank at 30.0 kPa is increased from –100.0˚C to
25.0 ˚C. What is the final pressure inside the tank?
25) Determine the pressure change when a constant volume of gas at 1.00 atm is heated from 20.0
°C to 30.0 °C.
26) A gas has a pressure of 0.370 atm at 50.0 °C. What is the pressure at standard temperature?
27) A gas has a pressure of 699.0 mm Hg at 40.0 °C. What is the temperature at standard pressure?
28) If a gas is cooled from 323.0 K to 273.15 K and the volume is kept constant what final pressure
would result if the original pressure was 750.0 mm Hg?
29) If a gas in a closed container is pressurized from 15.0 atmospheres to 16.0 atmospheres and its
original temperature was 25.0 °C, what would the final temperature of the gas be?
30) A 30.0 L sample of nitrogen inside a rigid, metal container at 20.0 °C is placed inside an oven
whose temperature is 50.0 °C. The pressure inside the container at 20.0 °C was at 3.00 atm.
What is the pressure of the nitrogen after its temperature is increased?
