A sample of neon has a volume of 320 mL when it is at a pressure of 817 mmHg. What will be the volume when the pressure is increased to 1601 mmHg?

Boyle's law is used to predict the result of introducing a change, in volume and pressure only, to the initial state of a fixed quantity of gas. The before and after volumes and pressures of the fixed amount of gas, where the before and after temperatures are the same (heating or cooling will be required to meet this condition), are related by the equation:
In the first scenario, the volume is 320 ml and the pressure is 817mmHg.
In the second scenario the pressure is 1601 mmHg and the volume is ?
plug in numbers into equation and solve for V2.
