If #3 L# of a gas at room temperature exerts a pressure of #25 kPa# on its container, what pressure will the gas exert if the container's volume changes to #5 L#?
The final volume will be
This question involves Boyle's law, which states that the volume of a given amount of gas held at constant temperature, varies inversely with the applied pressure. This means that if the pressure increases, the volume decreases, and vice-versa. The equation for this law is:
Rearrange the equation to isolate
