A student collects 530 mL of CO gas at a pressure of 1.2 atm and a temperature of 17ºC. What is the volume of the gas at 0ºC and 1 atm? (530 mL) x (1.2 / 1.0) x (273 / (17 + 273)) = 599 mL @Frostbite is this right?

Please try calculate the number again.

(530 mL) x (1.2 / 1.0) x (273 / (17 + 273)) is this part right?

Yea it looks right, but can you try see what it gives again?

yes my final answer is volume=676 is this right @Frostbite

You're given all the information, I don't know why you didn't just use the ideal gas law formula: \(PV = nRT\) to find moles. Then, Rearrange to solve for volume, therefore you have: \(V = \LARGE \frac{nRT}{P}\)

wait so how do I use the PV=nRT formula?

I actually dont know i dont have a calculator with me so maybe ur right or wrong.

Sorry I said something stupid. I made a wrong arrangement between the gas laws.

OpenStudy (frostbite):

I'm so sorry, first now I see I did a fatal mistake: We don't actually need \(n\), as it turns out it just go away: \[\Large pV=nRT \to 1=\frac{ pV }{ nRT }\] \[\Large \frac{ P _{1}V _{1} }{ nR T_{1} }=\frac{ P _{2}V _{2_{?}} }{ nRT _{2} }\] The gas constant \(R\) and amount of substance \(n\) remain constant so: \[\Large \frac{ P _{1}V _{1} }{ T _{1} }=\frac{ P _{2}V _{2} }{ T _{2} }\] Ones again sorry, and thanks @abb0t you made me see it.

I never said your method was incorrect. I wa just suggesting another :P
