The volume of a gas is reduced from 4 L to 0.5 L while the temperature is held constant. How does the gas pressure change?

As the volume decreases, the pressure will increase.


In Boyle's law, which states that the volume and the pressure of a gas are inversely proportional as long as mass and temperature are kept constant.

So if the volume of the gas was decreased, the pressure would increase.
