A sample of nitrogen gas has a volume of 15mL at a pressure of 0.50 atm. What is the pressure if the volume is changed to 30.0mL?
That sample of gas has a new pressure of
The answer can be determined by using Boyle's Law:
Let's identify our known and unknown variables.
Rearrange the equation to solve for the final pressure by dividing both sides by
Plug in your given values to obtain the final pressure:
