Lesson: Bulk Properties of an Ideal Gas High School PhysicsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the relationship between the changes in the pressure, volume, and temperature of an ideal gas.

Which of the following formulas most correctly represents the relation between the pressure, volume, and absolute temperature of an ideal gas?
A cylinder with a movable lid contains gas with a volume of 0.022 m3. The gas has an initial temperature of 348 K. The temperature is increased to 512 K and the lid rises to equalize the pressure to the value it had before heating. What volume does the gas in the cylinder occupy after it is heated? Give your answer to three decimal places.
A gas cylinder holds 3.25 m3 of gas at a pressure of 520 kPa and a temperature of 300 K. At what temperature would the gas pressure in the cylinder become 865 kPa while the volume stays constant? Give your answer to the nearest kelvin.
