Problem: A certain amount of chlorine gas was placed inside a cylinder with a movable piston at one end. The initial volume was 3.00 L and the initial pressure of chlorine was 1.80 atm . The piston was pushed down to change the volume to 1.00 L. Calculate the final pressure of the gas if the temperature and number of moles of chlorine remain constant

We are asked to calculate the final pressure. 


Given: 

P= 1.80 atm

V1 = 3.00 L

V2 = 1.00 L
