A cylinder is filled with 10.0L of gas and a piston is put into it. The initial pressure of the gas is measured to be 200.kPa.
The piston is now pushed down, compressing the gas, until the gas has a final volume of 3.10L. Calculate the final pressure of the gas. Round your answer to 3significant digits.
