Explanation:

Gay Lussac's law indicates that, as long as the volume of the container containing the gas is constant, as the temperature increases, the gas molecules move more rapidly. Then the number of collisions against the walls increases, that is, the pressure increases. That is, the gas pressure is directly proportional to its temperature.

Gay-Lussac's law can be expressed mathematically as follows:

$\frac{P}{T}=k$

Where P = pressure, T = temperature, K = Constant

You have a gas that is at a pressure P1 and at a temperature T1. When the temperature varies to a new T2 value, then the pressure will change to P2, and then:

$\frac{P1}{T1}=\frac{P2}{T2}$

In this case:

P1= 1.50 atmT1= 22 °C= 295 °K (being 0°C= 273 °K)P2= ?T2= 11 °C= 284 K

Replacing:

$\frac{1.5 atm}{295 K}=\frac{P2}{284 K}$

Solving:

$P2= 284 K*\frac{1.5 atm}{295 K}$

P2=1.44 atm

The pressure the gas will have if the pressure is initially 1.50 atm at 22.0 ° C and the temperature changes at 11.0 ° C is 1.44 atm (option D)

the major pests we deal with are insects, weeds and fungal diseases. a pesticide is a product, whether organic or chemical, used to kill the target pest. there are other techniques gardeners should use that can prevent the severe infestations that make the use of pesticides necessary
