a certain mass of a gas occupies 39 ml at 760 mm pressure .what volume would it occupy if the pressure is raised to 780 mm provided that temperature remains constant?

Dear Student,

Please find below the solution to the asked query:

The numerical will be solved by Boyle's Law which says :
At constant temperature,for a fixed mass of gas,volume is inversely proportional to pressure.
Formula used :
Here,P1= 760mm
         P2= 780mm
​         V1= 39 ml
​         V2=?

V2 = P1 × V1P2V2 = 760 × 39780=38 ml 


Hope this information will clear your doubts about numericals using Boyle's Law.
