The initial pressure, which goes in the blank, was
This question involves Boyle's gas law , which states that the volume of a given amount of a gas varies inversely with the pressure, as long as temperature is kept constant. This means that when the volume increases, the pressure decreases, and vice-versa. The equation you will need to answer this question is:
In your question, the blank is the initial pressure,
Rearrange the equation above to isolate
