Step 1

Given information:

Pressure of the gas at initial stage (P1) = 1.00 atm

Volume of the sample at initial stage (V1) = 250 mL

Pressure of the gas at final stage (P2) = 4.75 atm

Step 2

Bolye’s law states that the pressure of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume. The expression is given as follows:

Step 3

As volume is given in mL so it should be ... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseV = 250 mL 1L = 1000 mL 250 250 mL = . 1000 V, = 0.25 L fullscreen
