Nitrogen gas pressure problem

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

A nitrogen container has 100.0 liters of gas at a pressure of 3200 psi ruptures in a room at 28° C and 0.92 atm pressure. What volume will the nitrogen gas occupy in the room after the bottle empties? Please show all steps.

2 A typical vacuum system can obtain a pressure of 1.0 x 10-8 (-8 power) torr. Calculate the number of gas molecules present in 1.0 liter of gas at this pressure and 25° C.

3What is the partial pressure of each gas and the total pressure in the container of a gas mixture containing 10.0g of Xe, 10.0g of SF6 (small 6), and 10.0g of He in a 3.00 liter container at 27° C.

5. The term "limelite" comes from the stage lights that were used in the 19th century. These lights burned acetylene (C H ) which was made by reacting calcium carbide made from lime with water according to the following reaction:

CaC2 (s) + 2 H2O (1) ----> C2 H2 (g) + Ca (OH) 2 (s)

How many grams of Ca C2 would you need in a lamp if the lamp consumed 100.0 ml of gas per minute, the show was 1.00 hour long, the temperature of the room was 32° C and the pressure was 760.0 mm of Hg?

1. A nitogen container that has 100.0 liters of gas at a pressure of 3200 psi ruptures in a room at 28° C and 0.92 atm pressure. What volume will the nitrogen gas occupy in the room after the bottle empties?

Solution:
Vi = 100.0 L (initial volume)
Pi = 3200 psi = 217.7472 atm (initial pressure)

Vf = ? (final volume)
Pf = 0.92 atm (final pressure)

Because the ideal gas law is:
PV = nRT (where n, the number of moles of N2
R, the gas constant
T, the temperature
are the ...

Please help with the following problem. Provide step by step calculations.

A round balloon had a radius of 0.30 m & contains nitrogen (N2) at 30 degrees Celsius and one atmosphere total pressure. What is the volume of the nitrogen in the balloon? How many moles of nitrogen are in the balloon? What is the mass of the nitrogen in the balloon? If the balloon is then submerged in a body of fresh water to a depth of 25 meters where the water temperature is 7 degrees Celsius, what is the volume of the nitrogen in the balloon at the depth of 25 meters?
