Hello,
I wanted toknow if I came to the correct solution for this problem.
Thank You,

20 Cubic inches of a gas with an absolute pressure of 5 psi is compressed until its pressure reaches 10 psi. What is the new volume of the gas?(assume that there's no temperature change.)

my answer= 10 cubic inches

  • Physical Science -

    yes. You doubled the pressure so the volume is halved.
