If #32 L# of a gas at room temperature exerts a pressure of #64 kPa# on its container, what pressure will the gas exert if the container's volume changes to #16 L#?
The Pressure will change to
To solve this problem we can use Boyle's Law comparing the Pressure and Volume relationships
Use the multiplicative inverse to isolate the variable for
#(64kPa)(2) = P_2
More molecules in a small volume means more collisions and therefore more pressure.
