If a gas sample in a balloon had a volume of 100 and a pressure of 3 atm. It mL was then compressed to a pressure of 10 atm, what would be its volume?
The final volume of the gas will be
Boyle's gas law will allow us to find the answer. Boyle's law states that the volume of a given amount of gas varies inversely with the applied pressure, as long as temperature and mass are held constant. The equation for this law is:
