Answer:

Well....the volume should be COMPRESSED down to approx. #100*mL#.

Explanation:

According to old Boyle's law, #P_1V_1=P_2V_2# at constant #T#.

We know that #1*atm# of pressure will support a column of mercury that is #760*mm# high....and we can use a mercury column as a measurement of pressure on this basis......

We solve for #V_2=(P_1V_1)/(P_2)#

#=((8.45*mm*Hg)/(760*mm*Hg*atm^-1)xx4.60*L)/((368*mm*Hg)/(760*mm*Hg))=??L#.

Answer:

#0.1056L#

Explanation:

Using the Ideal Gas Laws,
#P_1V_1/T_1 = P_2V_2/T_2#, so at constant temperature we have

#P_1V_1 = P_2V_2# ; #(P_1V_1)/P_2 = V_2#

#V_2 = (8.45 xx 4.60)/368# ; #V_2 = 0.1056L#
