# Math Question?

Boyle's Law states that when a sample of gas is compressed at a constant temperature, the pressure P and volume V satisfy the equation PV = C, where C is a constant. Suppose that at a certain instant the volume is 300 cm3, the pressure is 80 kPa, and the pressure is increasing at a rate of 40 kPa/min. At what rate is the volume decreasing at this instant?
