At a pressure 43 kPa, the gas in a cylinder has a volume of 11 liters. Assuming temperature remains the same, if the volume of the gas is decreased to 5 liters, what is the new pressure?
Im guessing it 58 or 77x10^3

  1. PV=kT
    so, since T is constant, so is PV. You want P such that

    P*5 = 43*11
    P = 94.6
