If the volume were increased to 20 liters and the temperature reduced to 400 kelvins, what would be the pressure? Answer by stanbon(57940)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Sixteen liters of an ideal gas at a temperature of 500 kelvins has a pressure of 100 newtons per square meter. --- Volume = k[t/p] --- Find "k": 16 = k[500/100] --- k = 16/5 ---- Equation: V = (16/5)[t/p] --- If the volume were increased to 20 liters and the temperature reduced to 400 kelvins, what would be the pressure? 20 = (16/5)[400/p] pressure = (16/5)[500/20] --- Pressure = 16 neutons per sq. meter ============== Cheers, Stan H. ==============
