Boyles Law equation help!?
The problem reads: The volume of a given mass of a gas is 200ml at 76cmHg. If the volume is changed to 100ml at a constant temperature, what is the pressure of the gas?
Please help and thanks for you time!!!:D

The Boyles Law equation is pV = k where,
P = pressure
V = volume
k = constant value of the pressure and volume of the system.
Since we have two Volumes, k is the same, and only one pressure, we only need to solve for one pressure.
p1 = 76cmHg p2 = x
V1 = 200ml V2 = 100ml
Just rearrange this finding p2 or your new pressure and there is your answer.
