If #3 L# of a gas at room temperature exerts a pressure of #15 kPa# on its container, what pressure will the gas exert if the container's volume changes to #5 L#?
The gas will exert a pressure of
Let's begin by identifying our known and unknown variables.
The answer can be determined by using Boyle's Law:
Rearrange the equation to solve for the final pressure by dividing both sides by
Plug in your given values to obtain the final pressure:
