# Problem: A sample of gas has an initial volume of 5.1 L at a pressure of 748 mmHg .If the volume of the gas is increased to 9.0 L , what will the pressure be?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Calculate the final pressure using Boyle's Law:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{=}{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{2}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

P1 = 748 mmHg

V1 = 5.1 L

V2 = 9.0 L
