Solution Summary

The expert examines the change in gas pressure when volume is decreased by temperature stays the same.

Solution Preview

For ideal gases, the ideal gas law states P*V/T=Constant (eq 1). Or you can write this another way. P_1*V_1/T_1=P_2*V_2/T_2 (eq 2).

So we need to answer these questions in this context. In the first question, the halved ...
