    1.

    T = PV / nR = ( 2.5 atm) x (8 L) / ((3 mol) x (0.082057338 L atm/K mol)) = 81.24 K

    So answer c, although no more than one significant digit is justified.

    2. Balloons typically do not have a constant volume, but ignoring that fact:

    T = PV / nR = (0.76 atm) x (10 L) / ((2 mol) x (0.082057338 L atm/K mol)) = 46.3 K

    So answer b.

    3.

    n = PV / RT = (400 torr) x (0.520 L) / ((62.36367 L torr/K mol) x (340 K)) = 0.0098 mol

    So answer c.
