If I initially have 4.0 L of a gas at a pressure of 1.1 atm, what will the volume be if I increase the pressure to 3.4 atm?

This problem is a relationship between pressure and volume.

To solve for the volume we would use Boyle's Law, which is comparison of the inverse relationship between pressure and volume.

Identifying our values and units

We plug in equation

Rearrange algebraically to solve for x

We get value of 1.29 L.

I hope this was helpful.
