A sample of nitrogen gas has a pressure of 175.0 mm Hg in a 500.0 mL flask. What is the pressure of this gas sample when it is transferred to a 125.0 mL flask at the same temperature?
The pressure of this gas sample is to be calculated
According to the ideal gas law, the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to the volume of the gas at a constant temperature.
The modified equation will be
Putting all the values in the above equation
The final pressure of this gas sample is 43.75 mm Hg
