Question #56531

As the pressure of a gas at 101.3 kpa is changed to 50.65 kpa at constant temperature the volume of gas

Expert's answer

Under Boyle and Marriott's law, at a constant temperature work of pressure of gas upon its volume is a constant

P1*V1 = P2*V2

Then V2 = P1V1/P2 = V1 * 101.3/50.35 = 2V1

Answer: Volume will increase twice

P1*V1 = P2*V2

Then V2 = P1V1/P2 = V1 * 101.3/50.35 = 2V1

Answer: Volume will increase twice
