# 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

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the final pressure.

Given:

P= 1.80 atm

V1 = 3.00 L

V2 = 1.00 L
