Gas, Boyle's Law Question?

Boyle's Law states that absolute pressure exerted by a given mass of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to the volume it occupies if the temperature and amount of gas remain unchanged within a closed system.Put more simply, P is proportional to 1/V at constant T

A sample of nitrogen occupying a volume of 8 L at 25oC and exerting a pressure of 2 atm is allowed to expand to a volume 13 L. The temperature remains constant. What is the final pressure?

    Boyles Law can be viewed as P1V1 = P2V2

    P1=2atm

    V1=8L

    P2=?

    V2=13L

    (2atm)(8L) = (P2)(13L)

    P2 = 1.2 liters
