Ideal Gas Law - Temperature of Boiling Point of Chlorine

A hydrogen gas thermometer is found to have a volume of 100.0 cm3 when placed in an ice-water bath at 0°C.
When the same thermometer is immersed in boiling liquid chlorine, the volume of hydrogen at the same pressure is found to be 87.2 cm3. What is the temperature of the boiling point of chlorine?

Solution Preview

For hydrogen, PV = nRT, where P is pressure, V is volume, n is number of moles, R is the gas constant, and T is temperature. ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides the steps and calculations for finding the boiling point of chlorine.
