Question description

In a student experiment, a constant-volume gas thermometer is calibrated in liquid nitrogen (−196°C) and in boiling pentane (36.1°C). The separate pressures are 0.350 atm and 1.448 atm. Hint: Use the linear relationship P = A + BT, where A and B are constants.

(a) What value of absolute zero does the calibration yield? (b) What pressure would be found at the freezing point of water? (c) What pressure would be found at the boiling point of water?
