some students believe that teachers are full of hot air. If I inhale 3.5 liters of gas at a temperature of 19 degrees Celsius and it heats to a temperature of 58 degrees celsius in my lungs. what is the new volume of the gas?

some students believe that teachers are full of hot air. If I inhale 3.5 liters of gas at a temperature of 19 degrees Celsius and it heats to a temperature of 58 degrees celsius in my lungs. what is the new volume of the gas?

The air is going to come out because of the low pressure.

3.97 L

Explanation:

Data obtained from the question include the following:

Initial volume (V1) = 3.5 L

Initial temperature (T1) = 19 °C

Final temperature (T2) = 58 °C

Final volume (V2) =..?

Next, we shall convert celsius temperature to Kelvin temperature. This can be done as shown below:

Temperature (K) = temperature (°C) + 273

T (K) = T (°C) + 273

Initial temperature (T1) = 19 °C

Initial temperature (T1) = 19 °C + 273 = 292 K

Final temperature (T2) = 58 °C

Final temperature (T2) = 58 °C + 273 = 331 K

Finally, we shall determine the new volume of the gas by using Charles' law equation as shown below:

Initial volume (V1) = 3.5 L

Initial temperature (T1) = 292 K

Final temperature (T2) = 331 K

Final volume (V2) =..?

V1 /T1 = V2 /T2

3.5 /292 = V2 /331

Cross multiply

292 x V2 = 3.5 x 331

Divide both side by 292

V2 = (3.5 x 331) / 292

V2 = 3.97 L

Therefore, the new volume of the gas is 3.97 L.
