    An ideal gas occupies 2.75dm3 at 290K and 87000Pa. At what temperature will it occupy 3.95dm3 at 101,000Pa?

    So I worked out the number of moles :

    n = (2.75x10^-3) x (8.7x10^4) / (8.31 x 290)

    n = 0.099277

    Then I worked out the temp

    t = (1.01 x 10^5) x (3.96 x 10^-3) / (0.099277 x 8.31)

    t = 483K

    Somehow, the actual answer is 126,000 Pa! Can someone explain this to me? I have no idea why the answer is in Pa when its asking for temp (k)???

    thanks

    100% sure. It's even here https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=1067588

    The answers to the booklet are online and they say 126000 Pa and my teacher did the solutions and posted them on google classroom and got the same as them. I might have to email him tbh,

    yeah the pdf made a mistake. look at the answers to q12 and q13 - they're swapped around. the actual answer for q13 is is 483K. the answer for q12 is 126000pa. it wouldn't make sense for them to ask for the Temperature when the answer should be in pa. don't doubt yourself! textbooks and other resources make errors like this and it totally puts me off studying because it makes me feel like i just keep making mistakes when i'm actually not at all

    Those sheets aren't always correct. It's entirely possible it's a mistake.

    Hey i know how to do it firstly you need to know the ideal gas equation PV=nRt you want to look for then temperature so u rearrange the formula to get T=PV/nR temperature should be in kelvin so to get from Celsius to kelvin u add 273 and u subtract to get Celsius
