Hey all i'd thought i'd show some ways of solving two gas law equations. Thes are Boyle's and Charlies law.
Determine the volume (V2) of a 24ft cubed open bottom diving bell at 66fsw.
1ata x 24ft cubed / 3ata
A diver has a cylinder filled to P1=200bar at 20 degres celcius (T1=293k). He leaves the cylinder in the car,which is placed in the sun. In the car the temp rises to 70 degres cels (T2=243k). We assume the volume V of the cylinder remains the same since:
P1V / T1=P2V / T2
The new pressure P2 in the cylinder will be:
P2= P1VT2/T1V=200 x 343 /293=234 bar.
Well i hope this helps. Make sure you practce them alot.
