Temperature

Postby Veronica Macias 3K » Sun Jan 31, 2021 11:48 pm

If the temperature is not given in a problem do we assume it is at room temperature and use that for T?

If not indicated you can usually assume the system is under standard conditions (25* C).

Yes, we could assume that temperature would be at standard state, which is 25 degrees C, or 298 K.

Yes, if they don't give us temperature, assume that it is at 25 degrees celsius.

If the temperature isn't given, I believe we just assume it's at the standard 25oC.

Yes, I believe we are meant to assume that the temperature is 25 degrees C if it is not explicitly stated in the problem.

Also consider that if the temperature is not given, it's possible that the problem doesn't actually require PV=nRT and that you should try a different approach.

I'm pretty sure we are supposed to assume that it is standard and is at 25 degrees C.

Yes, when the temperature is not given we assume it is at 25 celsius. Just keep in mind that the problem you are solving might require temperature in Kelvin so you might need to convert it.

If it isn't given in a problem, you usually assume it's 298 K (or 25°C). I used to wonder this too but that is how it is in a lot of the Sapling textbook questions. If there is any ambiguity during an exam and you just want to be safe, I'm sure your TA will clarify it anyway.

Yep! Usually the question will say "standard room temperature" if they do not specify a temperature, meaning that it is at 25˚C or 298K.

Yes if not given assume room temperature at 25*C, and I think Professor Lavelle mentions that every lecture when temp is not specified.

Hope this helps.

You should assume it's 25ºC or 298K just make sure to look at what the problem is asking
