A 25.0 mL sample of gas is enclosed in a gastight syringe at 22oC. If the syringe is immersed in an ice bath, what is the new gas volume?
I have gathered that;
V1=25.0mL
T1=22C +273=295K
V2=???
T2=273?
I need to know if my information is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well I'm trying to use the Charles Law. However I am a little confused about what the second temperature will be. It says that the syringe is put in a ice bucket, then I have to find the new volume. I took a guess at 273K.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I ended up getting 23.1355. (Now I will round) However, I am given options for the answer and this doesn't match any of them. I don't know what I'm missing from the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@grimsnightmare how does your equation look? What is the general form of Charles' Law?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry the general formula is V1/T1=V2/T2 However I changed it to: V2 = T2*V1/T1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your rearrangement is correct, I don't know why you'd get an answer different than one of the options, unless there's a mistake in the problem itself. I get 23.15mL as well, so I don't know what to tell you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I figures out the problem. So if you were to work the problem by the original formula writing like this; 25.0 / 295 it equals 0.0847 You would round this right? My teacher didn't round to .085 so the problem was coming out all wrong.
