$$K=-37^{\circ}C+273.15=310\;K​​$$

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{P_iV_i}{T_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{T_f}$$
$$\frac{151\;atm\cdot35.4\;L}{298\;K}=\frac{1\;atm\cdot V_f}{310\:}$$
$$V_f=5.56\times10^3\;L$$

Q7.4.16

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$P_iV_i=P_fV_f$$

Set the initial pressure = x to calculate the factor of change in terms of x.

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$P_iV_i=P_fV_f$$
$$x\cdot0.50\;L =P_f\cdot1.50\;L$$
$$P_f=\frac{1}{3}x$$

The final pressure is one third of the original pressure.

Q7.4.17

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$P_iV_i=P_fV_f$$
$$1.0\;atm\cdot1.0\;L =P_f\cdot0.50\;L$$
$$P_f=2.0\;atm$$

Q7.4.18

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{V_i}{T_i}=\frac{V_f}{T_f}$$
$$\frac{2.75\;L}{100\;K}=\frac{V_f}{200\;K}$$
$$V_f=5.50\;L$$

Q7.4.19

$$K=25^{\circ}C+273.15=298\;K$$
$$K=-50^{\circ}C+273.15=323\;K​​$$

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{V_i}{T_i}=\frac{V_f}{T_f}$$
$$\frac{0.75\;L}{298\;K}=\frac{V_f}{323\;K}$$

Q7.4.20

$$K=45^{\circ}C+273.15=318\;K$$

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{V_i}{T_i}=\frac{V_f}{T_f}$$
$$\frac{2.5\;L}{318\;K}=\frac{1.4\;L}{T_f}$$
$$T_f=178\;K$$

$$^{\circ}C=K-273.15$$
$$^{\circ}C=178-273.15$$
$$^{\circ}C=-95\;K$$

Q7.4.21

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{V_i}{n_i}=\frac{V_f}{n_f}$$
$$\frac{3.50\;L}{2.00\;mol}=\frac{V_f}{2.75\;mol}$$
$$V_f=4.81\;L$$

Note the final moles is 2.75 because the problem says that 0.75 moles of gas is added to the original amount of 2.00 moles.

Q7.4.22

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{V_i}{n_i}=\frac{V_f}{n_f}$$
$$\frac{2.00\;L}{1.85\;mol}=\frac{3.25\;L}{n_f}$$
$$n_f=3.01\;mol$$

$$\text{moles added} = 3.01\;mol-1.85\;mol$$
$$\text{moles added} = 1.16\;mol$$

$$1.16\;mol\;He\left(\frac{4.003\;g}{mol}\right)=0.290\;g\; \text{He}$$

Q7.4.23

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{P_i}{T_i}=\frac{P_f}{T_f}$$

The temperature is doubled so $$T_f=2\cdot T_i$$

Let $$P_i=x$$ to see the factor the pressure changes.

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$\frac{P_i}{T_i}=\frac{P_f}{T_f}$$
$$\frac{x}{T_i}=\frac{P_f}{2\cdot T_i}$$
$$x=\frac{P_f}{2}$$
$$P_f=2x$$

The final pressure is twice the initial pressure.

Q7.4.24

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$P_iV_i=P_fV_f$$

The volume is tripled so $$V_f=3\cdot V_i$$

Let $$P_i=x$$ to see the factor the pressure changes.

$$\frac{P_iV_i}{n_iT_i}=\frac{P_fV_f}{n_fT_f}$$
$$P_iV_i=P_fV_f$$
$$x\cdot V_i=P_f\cdot 3V_i$$
$$x=3P_f$$
$$P_f=\frac{1}{3}x$$

The final pressure is one-third of the initial pressure.

7.5: Aqueous Solutions

Q7.5.1

The solute is present in the smaller amount, the solvent is present in the larger amount, and the solution is the combination of the solute and solvent.

Q7.5.2

Solutions are a homoogeneous mixture of two or more compounds.

Q7.5.3

Endothermic because heat was needed to dissolve the KNO3. Heat present in the solution was consumed by the dissolution process.

Q7.5.4

Strong electrolytes completely dissociate into ions in aqueous solution and are conductors of electricity. Weak electrolytes partially dissociate into ions in aqueous solutions are are weak conductors of electricity. Non-electrolytes do not dissociate into ions in aqueous solution and are poor conductors of electricity.

1. NaCl(s) → Na+(aq) + Cl(aq)
2. CoCl3(s) → Co3+(aq) + 3Cl(aq)
3. Li2S(s) → 2Li+(aq) + S2–(aq)

3. strong electrolyte
4. weak electrolyte
5. weak electrolyte
6. non-electrolyte

7.6: Colloids and Suspensions

Q7.6.1

A suspension can be separated from the solvent by filtration while a solution cannot because particles settle out of suspensions but not solutions.

Q7.6.2

Particles in a solution are less than 1 nanometer, colloids have particles from 1-1000 nm, and suspensions have particles over 1000 nm.

Q7.6.3

The Tyndall effect is the scattering of visible light by particles. The particles in colloids are large enough to scatter light while the particles in solutions are too small to scatter light. Solutions are transparent (we can see through them) because the particles are so small.

Q7.6.4

The dispersed phase is present in the smaller amount and the dispersing medium is present in a larger amount.

Q7.6.5

1. suspension
2. colloids and suspensions
3. solution
4. colloid
5. solution
6. colloids and suspensions
7. colloid
8. solutions and colloids
9. colloids

7.7: Solubility

Q7.7.1

A saturated solution has the maximum amount of solute dissolved. An unsaturated solution does not have the maximum amount dissolved; additional solute can be added and will dissolve.

Q7.7.2

1. Addition of solute to the solution until no more dissolves.
2. Removal of solvent such as through evaporation.

Q7.7.3

1. The added solute will not dissolve.
2. The added solute will dissolve.

Q7.7.4

1. The solute and solvent are both solids.

3. saturated (with additional undissolved solute)

Q.7.7.8

The solubility of a gas in a liquid is the greatest at low temperature and high pressure.
