Anna Marie is working a problem that reads “The pressure in a bicycle tire is at 105 psi at 25*C in Fresno. You take the bicycle up to Huntington, where the temperature is -5*C. What is the pressure in the tire? You can assume that volume and the number of particles is constant. Anna Marie’s solution looks like... show more Anna Marie is working a problem that reads “The pressure in a bicycle tire is at 105 psi at 25*C in Fresno. You take the bicycle up to Huntington, where the temperature is -5*C. What is the pressure in the tire? You can assume that volume and the number of particles is constant. Anna Marie’s solution looks like this: 105 psi (-5*C/25*C) = -21 psi. She feels pretty confident she has set up the problem correctly. You disagree with her answer. What don’t you like about her answer? How would you change about her solution? Why do you want to make that change?
