Ideal Gas Equation

Ideal Gas Equation problem 14

A 50-litre cylinder contains 5 kg of gas at a pressure of 60 bar. Another empty 20-litre cylinder is connected to the cylinder, the valve is opened and the pressures in the cylinders are allowed to be equal. The process is performed at a constant temperature.

  • What is the new pressure in each cylinder?

  • What is the mass of gas in each cylinder?
