# What is the volume occupied by 33.0 liters of gas at 4.0 atm after it has been compressed at constant temperature to 0.60 atm?

$\text{220 L}$

#### Explanation:

Ideal gas equation

$\text{PV = nRT}$

At constant $\text{T}$

$\text{P" prop 1/"V}$

${\text{P"_1"V"_1 = "P"_2"V}}_{2}$

$\text{V"_2 = ("P"_1"V"_1)/"P"_2 = (4.0 cancel"atm" × "33.0 L")/(0.60 cancel"atm") = "220 L}$
