# You have a sample of neon gas at a certain pressure, volume, and temperature. You double the volume, double the number of moles of neon, and double the Kelvin temperature. How does the final pressure (Pf) compare to the original pressure (Po) ?

##### 1 Answer

The final pressure will double as well.

If you use the ideal gas law equation,

**(1)**

You also know that the volume doubles, which means that

**(2)**

Divide equation **(1)** by equation **(2)** and you'll get

Therefore, the pressure doubles as well. Finally, the answer makes sense because the temperature and the number of moles will each double the pressure, but the fact that the volume doubles as well will cancel one of these effects out.

If the volume would have stayed the same, the pressure would have increased **4 times** - **2 times** because the temperature doubled and **2 times** more because the number of moles doubled.
