    Which law explains the mechanism of a pressure cooker?

    • A.

      Boyle's Law

    • B.

      Charles' Law

    • C.

      Gay - Lussac's Law

    • D.

      Ideal Gas Law

    Correct Answer
    C. Gay - Lussac's Law
    Explanation
    Gay-Lussac's Law, also known as the pressure-temperature law, explains the mechanism of a pressure cooker. According to this law, the pressure of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature, provided the volume and amount of gas remain constant. In a pressure cooker, as the temperature is increased, the pressure inside the cooker also increases. This increase in pressure raises the boiling point of water, allowing it to cook food at higher temperatures and speeds up the cooking process. Therefore, Gay-Lussac's Law is the most appropriate explanation for the mechanism of a pressure cooker.

    What will happen to the volume of a confined gas as the pressure increases if the temperature of the gas is kept constant?

    • A.

      The volume increases

    • B.

      The volume decreases

    • C.

      The volume remains the same

    • D.

      There is no significant change

    Correct Answer
    B. The volume decreases
    Explanation
    When the pressure of a confined gas increases while the temperature is kept constant, the volume of the gas decreases. This is known as Boyle's Law, which states that there is an inverse relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas when the temperature remains constant. As the pressure increases, the gas molecules are forced closer together, resulting in a decrease in volume.

    A balloon filled with helium occupies 15 L at 400 K. What will be the volume of the helium balloon if the temperature of the helium is increased to 600 K? (Assume that the pressure is held constant)

    • A.

      10 L

    • B.

      22.5 L

    • C.

      32.5 L

    • D.

      50 L

    Correct Answer
    B. 22.5 L
    Explanation
    When the temperature of a gas is held constant, the volume of the gas is directly proportional to its temperature. In this case, the initial volume of the helium balloon is 15 L at 400 K. If the temperature is increased to 600 K while keeping the pressure constant, the volume of the balloon will also increase. Since the volume is directly proportional to the temperature, the new volume can be calculated using the equation:

    V1/T1 = V2/T2

    where V1 is the initial volume, T1 is the initial temperature, V2 is the final volume, and T2 is the final temperature.

    Plugging in the values, we get:

    15/400 = V2/600

    Solving for V2, we find:

    V2 = (15/400) * 600 = 22.5 L

    Therefore, the volume of the helium balloon will be 22.5 L when the temperature is increased to 600 K.

    Gas molecules are trapped in the space below the piston. The piston can move up and down in the cylinder. The cylinder is resting on a hot plate. If the hot plate is turned on what would happen to the volume of the gas?

    • A.

      The volume increases

    • B.

      The volume decreases

    • C.

      The volume remains the same

    • D.

      There is no significant change

    Correct Answer
    A. The volume increases
    Explanation
    When the hot plate is turned on, the temperature of the gas molecules increases. As the temperature increases, the gas molecules gain more kinetic energy and move faster. This increased movement causes the gas molecules to collide more frequently and with greater force against the piston and the walls of the cylinder. The increased collisions exert a greater pressure on the piston, causing it to move upwards and increasing the volume of the gas. Therefore, the correct answer is that the volume increases.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Stay the same

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Increase
    Explanation
    When the hot plate is turned on, the temperature of the gas inside the piston will increase. According to the ideal gas law, an increase in temperature leads to an increase in pressure, assuming the volume and the number of gas molecules remain constant. Therefore, the pressure of the gas will increase.

    • C.

      There is no significant change

    • D.

      The gas pressure remains the same

    Correct Answer
    A. The pressure increases
    Explanation
    As the temperature increases, the kinetic energy of the gas molecules also increases. This leads to an increase in the frequency and force of their collisions with the walls of the container. Consequently, the pressure exerted by the gas on the container walls increases. Therefore, the correct answer is that the pressure increases.

    What will happen to the volume of the gas sample as temperature increases from 100 K to 150K?

    • A.

      Volume of the gas increases

    • B.

      Volume of the gas remains the same

    • C.

      Volume of the gas decreases

    • D.

      Volume of the gas cannot be determined

    Correct Answer
    A. Volume of the gas increases
    Explanation
    As temperature increases, the kinetic energy of the gas molecules also increases. This causes the gas molecules to move faster and collide more frequently with the walls of the container. The increased frequency of collisions leads to an increase in pressure, which in turn causes the volume of the gas to increase. Therefore, as the temperature increases from 100 K to 150 K, the volume of the gas sample will also increase.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What is the volume of the gas sample when the temperature is 150 K?

    • A.

      1 L

    • B.

      2 L

    • C.

      3 L

    • D.

      4 L

    Correct Answer
    C. 3 L
    Explanation
    At constant pressure, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to its temperature. This relationship is described by the ideal gas law equation, PV = nRT, where P is the pressure, V is the volume, n is the number of moles of gas, R is the ideal gas constant, and T is the temperature in Kelvin. Therefore, if the temperature increases, the volume of the gas sample will also increase. Since the question states that the temperature is 150 K, the volume of the gas sample will be 3 L.

    A gas sample occupies a volume of 100 mL at a pressure of 3.0 atm at 20.00C. What is the new pressure if the volume is increased to 150 mL at constant temperature?

    • A.

      5.0 atm

    • B.

      4.5 atm

    • C.

      2.0 atm

    • D.

      1.5 atm

    Correct Answer
    C. 2.0 atm
    Explanation
    When the volume of a gas sample is increased at constant temperature, according to Boyle's Law, the pressure of the gas decreases. Boyle's Law states that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume when the temperature is held constant. In this case, the volume is increased from 100 mL to 150 mL, which means the pressure will decrease. The new pressure can be calculated using the equation P1V1 = P2V2, where P1 and V1 are the initial pressure and volume, and P2 and V2 are the final pressure and volume. Plugging in the given values, we get (3.0 atm)(100 mL) = (P2)(150 mL), which simplifies to 300 atm.mL = 150P2. Solving for P2, we find that the new pressure is 2.0 atm.

      4 mole

    Correct Answer
    D. 4 mole
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4 mole. The pressure of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles of gas present, assuming the temperature and volume are constant. Therefore, the container with 4 moles of gas will have the highest pressure compared to the containers with fewer moles of gas.

    • B.

      Ask two persons to hold a box filled with air

    • C.

      Feel the weight of the samples on both hands

    • D.

      Put a balloon on a balance which can measure up the nearest hundredths of a gram before and after you fill it with air

    Correct Answer
    D. Put a balloon on a balance which can measure up the nearest hundredths of a gram before and after you fill it with air
    Explanation
    By putting a balloon on a balance before and after filling it with air, you can observe the change in weight. Since gases have negligible mass, the weight of the balloon should remain relatively unchanged before and after filling it with air. This can be proven through the equation of mass, where the mass of the gas inside the balloon is so small compared to the mass of the balloon itself that it can be considered negligible. Therefore, the change in weight of the balloon will be minimal, supporting the claim that gases have negligible mass.

    A gas sample occupies a volume of 125 mL at a pressure of 720 torr at 20.00C. What is the new pressure if the volume is increased to 250 mL at the same temperature?

    • A.

      1440 torr

    • B.

      720 torrr

    • C.

      360 torr

    • D.

      375 torr

    Correct Answer
    C. 360 torr
    Explanation
    When the volume of a gas sample is increased while keeping the temperature constant, the pressure of the gas decreases. This is known as Boyle's Law. In this case, the initial volume is 125 mL and the final volume is 250 mL. Since the volume is doubled, the pressure will be halved. Therefore, the new pressure will be 720 torr / 2 = 360 torr.

    Why does the rate of reaction increase when iron filings are used instead of iron nail in a reaction with hydrochloric acid?

    • A.

      Iron filings act as a catalyst.

    • B.

      Iron filings have higher density.

    • C.

      Iron filings have higher surface area.

    • D.

      Iron filings can increase the temperature of the reaction.

    Correct Answer
    C. Iron filings have higher surface area.
    Explanation
    Iron filings have a higher surface area compared to an iron nail. When a reaction occurs between iron and hydrochloric acid, the surface area of the iron determines the rate of reaction. With a higher surface area, there are more exposed iron particles available for the acid to react with. This increases the number of collisions between the reactants and speeds up the reaction rate. Therefore, using iron filings instead of an iron nail increases the rate of reaction.

Which of the following pressure and temperature conditions could increase the yield of ammonia?

    • A.

      Low temperature and low pressure

    • B.

      High temperature and low pressure

    • C.

      Low temperature and high pressure

    • D.

      Both high temperature and pressure

    Correct Answer
    D. Both high temperature and pressure
    Explanation
    Increasing both temperature and pressure can increase the yield of ammonia because the reaction between nitrogen and hydrogen to form ammonia is exothermic. According to Le Chatelier's principle, increasing the temperature will shift the equilibrium towards the products side, increasing the yield of ammonia. Additionally, increasing the pressure will also shift the equilibrium towards the products side, further increasing the yield of ammonia. Therefore, both high temperature and pressure conditions can increase the yield of ammonia.
