# Problem: A fixed quantity of gas at 23 oC exhibits a pressure of 756 torr and occupies a volume of 5.32 L.Calculate the volume the gas will occupy if the pressure is increased to 1.88 atm while the temperature is held constant.

###### FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the ideal gas law is:

$\overline{){\mathbf{PV}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{nRT}}}$

Therefore, the initial and final pressure and volume of the gas are related by Boyle’s Law:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$
