Q. 5

# The pressure of the gas in a constant volume gas thermometer is 70 kPa at the ice point. Find the pressure at the steam point.

Answer :

95.6 kPa.

__Explanation:__

**Given,**

The pressure at ice point, P_{1}, is 70kPa

**Formula Used**

The relation connecting the temperature ( and pressure() of a volumetric thermometer can be represented as,

K (eqn. 1)

K (eqn. 2)

K (eqn. 3),

Where,

subscripts 1 and 2 in the above equations represents the ice point and steam point respectively. So,

By dividing (eqn. 3) by (eqn. 2),

Or,

P_{2}=95.6 kPa(Ans.)

Hence the pressure at steam point is 95.6 kPa≈96 kPa
