Chemistry Graphs: Charles' Law
Charles' Law states that the
(V) of a confined
is directly proportional to its temperature (T) in Kelvin.
When the temperature changes one unit on the
scale it is equivalent to a change in one Celsius degree; that is, they are in a one-to-one correspondence. Note that 0 on the Kevin
represents "Absolute Zero" or -273 ºC.
Use the following
vs. Temperature to answer the next four questions.
As the temperature of the
increases from 250 K to 350 K, does the
increase or decrease?
What is the
sample when its temperature is 300 K?
What is the temperature of the
when it occupies a
of 250 mL?
If 0.05 moles of
are present in our sample, use the
to determine the constant pressure that was exerted on the
during this experiment.
