Solution 202 1.0 (1 ratings)  Let the initial pressure in bulb ( A=P ) and Final pressure ( =mathrm{P}_{2} ) Final pressure is ( 40 % ) of the initial pressure. So ( mathrm{P}_{2} ) ( =(40 / 100) mathrm{P} ) Volume in ( A=100 mathrm{mL} ) Let initially volume of ( mathrm{B}=mathrm{V} ) After opening the stop cock final volume will be ( (100+mathrm{V}) mathrm{mL} ) According to Boyle's law ( mathrm{P}_{1} mathrm{V}_{1}=mathrm{P}_{2} mathrm{V}_{2} ) ( mathrm{P} times 100=(40 / 100) mathrm{P} times(100+mathrm{V}) ) ( 100=40+(40 / 100) vee ) ( 100-40=(40 / 100) vee ) ( (60 times 100) / 40=V ) ( V=150 mathrm{mL} ) Thus, the volume of bulb ( B=150 mathrm{mL} ) Quick and Stepwise Solutions Just click and Send OVER 20 LAKH QUESTIONS ANSWERED Download App for Free
