Answer:

76.2 torr

Explanation:

Boyle's law # P_1 xx V_1 = P_2 xx V_2#

Pressure and Volume are inversely related. As the Volume increases the Pressure Decreases

#P_1 = 242 t #
# V_1 = 17.0 ml#
#P_2 = P # (unknown)
#V_2 = 54.0 ml#

# 242 xx 17.0 = P xx 54.0 # Divide both sides by 54.0

# (242 xx 17.0)/ 54.0 = P #

76.185185 = P (Since there are only three significant digits in the problem there can be only three significant digits in the answer.)

76.2 torr = P
