# Question #85d83

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

Volume of the bag: **800 mL**.

#### Explanation:

I'll assume that the initial pressure is actually **670 mmHg**, not 6700 mmHg (although it could just as easily be 760 mmHg).

The idea here is that the pressure and the volume of the gas that's trapped inside the bag will have a **direct relationship** when *temperature* and *number of moles* are kept constant - this is known as Boyle's Law.

In other words, **decreasing** the pressure will cause the volume to **increase** and vice versa.

Mathematically, this is written as

In your case, the pressure drops from **670 mmHg** to **420 mmHg**, which means that the volume of the bag must *increase*

Rounded to one sig fig, the number of sig figs you gave for the initial volume of the bag, the answer will be

**SIDE NOTE** *If, by any chance, your pressure was actually 6700 mmHg, simply redo the calculations using this value*.
