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 600 cm3 , 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?
