Which of the following relationships are correct according to Boyle’s law.
Check all that apply.


Standard temperature and pressure (STP) are considered to be 273 K and 1.0 atm. Predict which of the following changes will cause the volume of the balloon to increase or decrease assuming that the temperature and the gas filling the balloon remain unchanged.
volume increases:
-balloon filled with helium under water at 1.15 atm is released and floats to the surface, which is at STP.
-balloon filled with helium at STP floats into the atmosphere where the pressure is 0.5 atm.

volume decreases:
-balloon filled with helium at STP is submerged under water where the pressure is 1.25 atm.

volume is unchanged:
-balloon filled with helium at STP floats into air where the pressure equals 1 atm.

A certain gas is present in a 15.0 L cylinder at 2.0 atm pressure. If the pressure is increased to 4.0 atm the volume of the gas decreases to 7.5 L . Find the two constants ki, the initial value of k, and kf, the final value of k, to verify whether the gas obeys Boyle’s law.

How long does it take a person at rest to breathe one mole of air if the person breathes 83.0 mL/s of air that is measured at 25 ?C and 755 mmHg?
296 s
Typically, when a person coughs, he or she first inhales about 2.50 L of air at 1.00 atm and 25 ?C. The epiglottis and the vocal cords then shut, trapping the air in the lungs, where it is warmed to 37 ?C and compressed to a volume of about 1.70 L by the action of the diaphragm and chest muscles. The sudden opening of the epiglottis and vocal cords releases this air explosively. Just prior to this release, what is the approximate pressure of the gas inside the lungs?
1.53 atm
Helium-oxygen mixtures are used by divers to avoid the bends and are used in medicine to treat some respiratory ailments. What percent (by moles) of He is present in a helium-oxygen mixture having a density of 0.528 g/L at 25 ?C and 721 mmHg?
