Ideal gas law

Cyclopropane is used as a general anesthetic. If a sample of cyclopropane stored in a 2.00L container at 10.0 atm and 25C is transferred to a 5.00L container at 5.00 atm, what is the resulting temperature?

Please see the attached file.

Assuming we can treat Cyclopropane as an ideal gas (it is a very small organic molecule),we can use the gas state-equation:


Where P is the pressure, V is the volume, n is the number of moles of gas, R ...

Solution Summary

The ideal gas laws are analyzed for general anesthetic are examined. The resulting temperatures are given.
