Principles of Chemistry

A certain amount of chlorine gas was placed inside a cylinder with a movable piston at one end. The initial volume was 3.00 L and the initial pressure of chlorine was 1.30atm . The piston was pushed down to change the volume to 1.00 L. Calculate the final pressure of the gas if the temperature and number of moles of chlorine remain constant

  1. Use P1V1=P2V2


    Since you don't know the P2 just plug in all of the known factors:

    (3.00L)(1.30atm)= (1.00L)P2

    Solve for P2

    3.90=1

    P2=3.90atm
