Using PV=nRT

Postby Erik Buetow 1F » Sun Jan 19, 2020 8:19 pm

Will we need to use this equation for test 1? And if so, will we only use it to find pressure or concentration for the equilibrium equation?

This equation will most likely show up on the test. It is used for finding the equilibrium pressure of a gas.

Everything that we have covered so far is fair game, so I would not be surprised if at least one question required this formula. However, if I remember correctly, it is on the equation sheet.

Yes, you would use the equation to convert between concentration and partial pressure, depending on what the problem asks for.

You would need to use this equation if you needed to convert mols to pressure.

Yes you can use it find find pressure if you have the molarity (n/V) or vice versa.

If it does, it will be in the context of converting partial pressure to concentration or vice versa

It is on the equation sheet but you should understand the reasoning behind the derivation of this equation.
