Calculate temperature using vapor pressure


Please explain the math as elementary as possible. Thanks.

The vapor pressure of Ethanol is 115 torr at 34.9EC If H sub vap = 40.5 kJ/mol, calculate the temperature (in EC) at which the vapor pressure is 760 torr.

Solution Summary

This solution is provided in an attached .doc file. It briefly gives an equation and uses this equation to find the temperature.
