Boyle’s Law



Boyle’s Law states that the volume of a gas varies inversely with its pressure if temperature is held constant. (If one goes up the, other goes down.) We use the formula:


P1 x V1 = P2 x V2

Solve the following problems (assuming constant temperature).




  1. A sample of oxygen gas occupies a volume of 250.mL at 740. torr pressure. What volume will it occupy at 800. torr pressure?


  1. A sample of carbon dioxide occupies a volume of 3.50 liters at 125 kPa pressure. What pressure would the gas exert if the volume was decreased to 2.00 liters?


  1. A 2.0 liter container of nitrogen had a pressure of 3.2 atm. What volume would be necessary to decrease the pressure to 1.0 atm.


  1. Ammonia gas occupies a volume of 450. mL at a pressure of 720. mm Hg. What volume will it occupy at standard pressure?


  1. A 175 mL sample of neon had its pressure changed from 75 kPa to 150 kPa. What is its new volume?


  1. A sample of hydrogen at 1.5 atm had its pressure decreased to 0.50 atm producing a new volume of 750 mL. What was its original volume?


  1. Chlorine gas occupies a volume of 1.2 liters at 720 torr pressure. What volume will it occupy at 1 atm pressure?


  1. Fluorine gas exerts a pressure of 900. torr. When the pressure is changed to 1.50 atm, its volume is 250. mL. What was the original volume?
