Practice Problems
Ideal Gas Law
Topics:
On this worksheet you will practice with the Ideal Gas Law, the Combined Gas Law, as well as the relationships between the number of moles, the mass, and the number of molecules in a gas sample.
Page Directions
The numerical values in this worksheet are randomly generated allowing students the opportunity to conveniently practice, and drill, common situations.
Before beginning any given worksheet, please look over all of the questions and make sure that there are
no duplicate
answers shown for the same question. If duplicates are present simply refresh the page until every answer is unique.
In order to check an answer
(even when you are just starting the worksheet on Question 1)
it is necessary to
any questions that you have not answered. Once you start submitting answers, the page may be checked as many times as necesasary without changing the randomized answers. Relevant scoring will be provided at the top of the page only when you answer all of the questions on your original submission.

Question 5
A tiny bubble of air, V = 6 cm
^{3}

Question 6
Two flasks are connected by an tube that is initially clamped off. One flask, volume of 240 cm
^{3}
, contains argon gas at 0.6 atmospheres while the second flask, volume of 480 cm
^{3}
, contains helium at 1.2 atmospheres. The clamp is removed so that the gases can mix. If the temperature remains constant, what is the final pressure in the double-flask system?
