# Boyles and Charles Law?

A sample of CO2 is put into a 35ml elastic balloon at 0.961 atm. If the balloon were put into a chamber of only 0.753 atm pressure, what would be the resulting volume

Assuming the temperature is constant, we can use Boyle's Law:

P ∝ 1/V

or

PV = k, k being a constant (nRT, if you're curious, but that's not the point).

P₁V₁ = P₂V₂, since both equal a constant:

(.961 atm)(35 mL) = (.753 atm)V₂

V₂ = (.961 atm)(35 mL)/(.753 atm)

V₂ ≈ 44.67 mL
