At constant temperature, the pressure of a sample of gas is inversely proportional to its volume. I have some hydrogen in a 3.67 liter container with a pressure of 4 kPa. If I move all of it to a 1.835 liter container at the same temperature, what will the new pressure be in kPa?

 

Thank you!

Inverse proportionality

3.67L4kPa
1.835Lx = 8kPa

x = (4*3.67)/1.835 = 8kPa

 

P.S: This the Boyle's Law
