the squares and cubes didn't come out right
The Volume, V of a given mass of gas varies directly as the temperature
T and inversely as the pressure, P. If V= 276.0in when T= 230 degrees
and P= 10 lbs , what is the volume when T= 130 degrees and P = 15 lbs ?
The answer is 104.0 in Please show work so I can understand.
In math lang:
Let . In the transition, temperature goes from 230 to 130. So, new temperature is of original temperature. Pressure goes from 10 to 15, and the new pressure is of the original.
Since V is directly proportional to T and inversely proportional to P, it will suffer a decrease because of temperature drop and a decrease because pressure P raises 50%. So,
Hope it's clear,
