Answer:

Well #P_1V_1=P_2V_2# according to old #"Boyle's Law"#.

Explanation:

Given the proportionality, we could use any units of pressure, and volume, i.e. #"psi"#, or #"pints"#, or #"gallons"# as Boyle, working in the 17th century, undoubtedly did.

And so #P_2=(P_1V_1)/V_2=(1112*"psi"xx6.53*L)/(12.45*L)=??"psi"#
