# A gas is in a sealed container. By what factor does the gas pressure change if: a. The volume is doubled and the temperature is tripled? b. The volume is halved and the temperature is tripled?

a. The final pressure enhance 1.5 times of initial pressure.

b. The final pressure enhance will 6 times.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1:  Formulation of ideal gas

As per, the formula of ideal gas is

are initial pressure, volume, and temperature.

Let are final pressure, volume, and temperature.

Applying the

Then put the value of above equation

So, the final pressure enhance 1.5 times of initial pressure.

## Step 2: Equation of ideal gas

Assume

Applying all data

So, the final pressure enhance will 6 times.
