P2=?

V1=3.93L

V2=1.09L

**** 1 atm = 760 torr

Use P1V1/T1=P2V2/T2 and solve for P2. Assuming T1=T2, you can ignore the T's and rewrite the equation as P1V1=P2V2.

Rearranging the equation results in (P1V1)/P2=V2

Plug in your values and solve for V2

Afterwards multiply by the conversion provided to get your answer in torr.
