##### 1 Answer

The new pressure must be **238 torr**.

You have two parameters that remain constant after the change is made - temperature and number of moles.

Since only pressure and volume will be changed, you can use Boyle's Law to solve for the pressure needed to get your sample from **190. mL**. to **600. mL**.

According to Boyle's Law, an ideal gas' pressure and volume have an *inverse relationship* when temperature and number of moles are kept constant.

In other words, the higher the pressure, the smaller the volume. LIkewise, the lower the pressure, the bigger the volume.

Mathematically, this is written as

So, you know the initial volume and pressure, and the final volume, which means that you can solve for the final pressure by

Notice that the magnitude of the final pressure is given by the ratio between the two volumes.

Since *increases*), you have *decreases*). Likewise, if

*decreases*), then *increases*).
