It is -340.368 Joules.

The formula is: w=-P*change in volume=-1.2atm*2.8L=-3.36L*atm

Then convert the units-- 1L*atm=101.3J

### What would happen if you put a balloon in the sun?

It would expand as the gases inside expand against the pressure of the skin of the balloon and the atmospheric pressure.

### How does the altitude effect the size of a balloon?

As the external pressure drops with increasing altitude, balloons generally expand with height.

### What would happen if you inflated a balloon on the moon?

Since there is no external pressure to counteract the internal gas pressure, the gas would expand until the balloon burst.

### Why do balloons expand as they rise through the troposphere?

The ballon contains a fixed amount of gas producing internal pressure. At the surface, this pressure equals the surface atmospheric pressure. As the balloon rises, the atmospheric pressure drops, allowing the balloon to expand, keeping the internal pressure and external pressure equal. If the balloon is fully inflated at the surface it will burst at higher altitude.

### Why does a tire expand as you pump air into it?

because you're putting pressure inside the tire of the required psi recommended

### What causes excessive coolant loss?

Normally a leak in the sytem, either internal or external. More details would be required to expand on the answers to be given

### Can air expand?

Air expand on heating as heat in a gas is the random kinetic energy of the molecules. Pressure is the result of kinetic energy in one direction, so an increase in heat leads to an increase in pressure, which leads to expansion against the surroundings.

### How much work in J is required to expand the volume of a pump from 0.0 to 2.7 against an external pressure of 1.2?

you will first use the equation W= -P delta V W= -1.2 (2.7-0) W= -3.24 but we must convert the J the current answer is in L. ATMs so therefore 101.3 J = 1L x ATM simply do the conversion and winn for gryffendor -330 J Two sig fig's

### How does a balloon expand?

when you fill a balloon with air the air makes pressure. the air pressure maximizes the balloon fabric allowing the balloon to expand.
