Determine the percentage change in the volume of a sample of carbon tetrachloride when it is pressurized from 1.000 atm to 2.000 atm at 25 C.
Determine the percentage change in the volume of a sample of carbon tetrachloride when its temperature is changed from 25 C to 35 C.
from Boyles law we know, V2 =(P1 *V1)/P2 where V2 is the new volume,V1 is the initial volume ,P1 is the initial pressure and P2 is the new pressure.
so ,V2=1*V1/2=V1/2,putting the value P1=1 and P2=2
so,change in volume (V1-V2)/V1=2/7
so percentage change of volume,2/7*100=28.57%
so ,percentage change in volume,1/2*100=50%
from Charles law,V2=(V1/T1)*T2 ,where T1 is the initial temp and T2is the new temp,V1 and V2 are initial and new volume.
V2=V1*25/35=5V1/7 putting the value T1=25 and T2=35
so change of volume =V2-V1)
