# What volume of gas would result if 225 mL of neon gas is compressed from 1 .0 2 atm to 2 . 99 mm at constant temperature?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The volume of gas at different pressure at constant temperature.

Concept Introduction:

Boyle’s law states that at constant temperature, the pressure of gas is inversely proportional to volume of it.

Expression: P1 V1 = P2 V2.

Explanation

Given information:

P1 = 1.02 atm, V1 = 225 mL

P2 = 2.99 atm, V2 = Must be calculated

The mathematical expression of Boyle’s law is;

P1 V1 = P2 V2 (1)

Plug in the given values in equation (1)

1.02 atm × 225 mL  = 2
