# Word problem for calculus relating to - Boyle's Law - States PV=C where C is Constant?

Boyle’s law states that when gas is compressed at constant temperature, the pressure P and volume V of a given sample satisfy the equation PV = C, where C is constant. Suppose that at a certain time the volume is 40 in^3, the pressure is 70 lb/in^2, and the volume is increasing at the rate of 12 in^3/sec. How fast...

Boyle’s law states that when gas is compressed at constant temperature, the pressure P and volume V of a given sample satisfy the equation PV = C, where C is constant. Suppose that at a certain time the volume is 40 in^3, the pressure is 70 lb/in^2, and the volume is increasing at the rate of 12 in^3/sec. How fast is the pressure changing at this instant? Is it increasing or decreasing?
