6) Boyle's law says that when a gas is compressed while temperature remains constant, the
pressure and volume obey the law PV = C where C is a constant. Suppose that at an instant the
volume is 600 cm, the pressure is 150 kPa and the pressure is increasing at a rate of 20 kPa/min.
At what rate is the volume decreasing at this instant?
