# What would the volume on the gas be? watch

1. what would the volume of the gas be? assume the temperature is constant?Silver is made at pressure 4.00x10^4 atm . If we take 3.00 litres of gas at 2.00 atm and compressed it into a pressure of 4.00x10^4. What would the volume of the gas be?

Use p1 v1 t2 = p2 v2 t1

Welcome to TSR physics.

Put the values you have in the question into the formula to find V2
T1 and T2 cancel as they are equal.

What are you stuck on?
3. Is the formula p1 v1 / v2?

The formula is given to you. "p1 v1 t2 = p2 v2 t1" in the question.

It is usually written

but as T1 = T2 (temperature is constant) it becomes

Just put in the values that you have been given in the question to find V2
5. Okay thanks The formula is given to you. "p1 v1 t2 = p2 v2 t1" in the question.
