Practice Problems
Ideal Gas Law
Directions:
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.

Question 5
A tiny bubble of air, V = 9 cm
^{3}
, is released by a fish near the bottom of a lake at a depth of 26 meters. If the temperature at the bottom of the lake is 4 ºC and 12 ºC at the surface, what is the volume of the bubble just as it breaks the surface of the lake?

Question 6
Two flasks are connected by an tube that is initially clamped off. One flask, volume of 260 cm
^{3}
, contains argon gas at 0.9 atmospheres while the second flask, volume of 520 cm
^{3}
, contains helium at 1.3 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?
