A 3700 mL flask is initially open in a room containing air at
1.00 atm and 20 ∘C. The flask is then closed and immersed in
boiling water. When the air in the flask has reached thermodynamic
equilibrium, the flask is opened and air is allowed to escape. The
flask is then closed and cooled back to 20 ∘C.
Part A: Find the maximum pressure reached in the flask. Express
your answer with the appropriate units.
p_max = ?
Part B: Find the number of moles that escape when air is
released. Express your answer with the appropriate units. n = ?
