# Synthetic diamonds can be manufactured at pressures of #6.00 times 10^4# atm. If we took 2.00 liters of gas at 1.00 atm and compressed it to a pressure #6.00 times 10^4# atm, what would the volume of that gas be?

##### 3 Answers

The volume is

#### Explanation:

Apply Boyle's Law

The temperature being constant

The initial volume is

The initial pressure

The final pressure is

The final volume is

Rather small, a fraction of a millilitre….

#### Explanation:

Old Boyle's Law insists that

And so …………….

And note our assumptions...we ASSUME (perhaps wrongly) that the gas would not undergo a phase change.

#### Explanation:

Assuming gas is **ideal undergoing a constant temperature process** then

According to Boyle's Law, at constant temperature

As per given data, initial pressure

The final volume of gas becomes
