**drwls**, Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 12:17pmIn this situation, because of the inverse proportionality,

P1/P2 = V2/V1

1 and 2 denote the two different conditions.

23/30 = V2/240

Solve for V2, the volume at P2 = 30

184, 166, 313, or 297

**tony**, Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 12:46pmI got 313, is this correct?

(240*30)/23=313

**drwls**, Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 5:34pmNo, it is 184. You incorrectly rearranged the equation I wrote.

The volume has to decrease when you increase the pressure.
