Pascal
all of these are units of pressure

b) What device is used to measure atmospheric pressure?

c) What pressure (atm) is exerted by a column of ethanol 55.0 cm high? The density of ethanol is 0.789 g/cm3 and 9.8m/s2 as your gravitational constant. Round to three decimal places, do not include units or commas in your answer.

d) True or False, use only capital T or F:

The relationship between pressure and temperature (At constant volume) is inversely proportional.
The relationship between volume and temperature (At constant pressure) is directly proportional.

e) A 33.5 cm3 bubble of air at 1.3 atm pressure is subjected to a new pressure of 4.6 atm. What will be the new volume (cm3)? Assume constant temperature. Do not include units, round to one decimal place.

f) A balloon is filled with 1.8 cm3 helium gas at 100 atm pressure. What will be the new pressure (atm) if the volume is changed to 62.5 cm3? Round to one decimal place, do not include units or commas in your answer.

g) What volume (In Liters) of oxygen must react to form 17.0L of carbon dioxide according to the following balanced equation: 2CO(g) + O2(g) --> 2CO2(g)
Assume an excess of CO and that all are at the same temperature and pressure. Round to one decimal place, do not include units in your answer.

h) What volume (In Liters) of hydrogen must react to form 4.0L of ammonia according to the following balanced equation: N2(g) + 3H2(g) --> 2NH3(g) Assume an excess of N2 and that all are at the same temperature and pressure. Round to one decimal place, do not include units in your answer.

- All gases will occupy the same volume

Solution Preview

a) All are units of pressure

b) A manometer is used to measure atmospheric pressure

c) Pressure = density x gravity x height = 42527.1 g / cm s^2 = 4252.71 kg / m s^2 = 4252.71 Pa = 0.042 atm
