1. An ideal gas is at volume V at temperature T. If the volume is doubled at constant pressure, the temperature will be:

2. An ideal gas is sealed in a container at constant volume. If the temperature T is increased to 4T, the pressure will be:

3. A sample of an ideal gas is held at constant temperature. If the pressure is decreased to 1/2 P, the volume will be:

4. A cylinder has 2 moles of ideal gas at a constant volume and pressure. Adding 2 more moles of gas makes the temperature

6. P, V, M, T, and R are pressure, volume, molar mass, temperature and gas constant, then density of an ideal gas is:

7. The temperature of an ideal gas is increased from 300K to 600K. The average molecular speed of the gas molecules

9. A mixture of CO2, O2, and He is held at constant temperature. Which molecule has the highest average molecular speed?

10. Which of the following conditions would cause the ideal gas laws to fail?
