# In the equation pv=nrt, how would you solve for v?

Dec 13, 2015

By applying a little algebra.

#### Explanation:

So you have the original equation, $P V = n R T$. To get the V, you must multiply both sides by P.

Therefore,

$\frac{\cancel{P} V}{\cancel{\text{P}}}$ = $\frac{n R T}{P}$ or

$V$ = $\frac{n R T}{P}$

Now you can check if the equation above is correct by recalling the various principles in Gas Laws.
