V=???

Expert's answer

The final volume can be calculated using the formula of Boyle’s gas law converting the values to SI units P_{2} = 101325 Pa; P_{1} = 2634450 Pa; V_{1} = 0.028 m^{3}

V_{2} = P_{1}V_{1}/P_{2}

V_{2} = 2634450 x 0.028/101325 = 0.728 m^{3}

Answer: 0.728 m^{3}

V

V

Answer: 0.728 m
