Explanation:
To solve this equation, we can use the pressurevolume relationship of gases, illustrated by Boyle's law:
Since we need to find the final volume, let's rearrange this equation to solve for
Our known variables are

#P_1# #12# #"atm"# 
#V_1# #1.5# #"L"# 
#P_2# #2.0# #"atm"#
Plugging these into the equation we have
Thus, when a
