The Boyle's gas law defines the relationship between pressure and volume. According to this, the volume of gas is inversely proportional to its pressure at constant temperature. PV= constant. Therefore as the volume of a gas increases the pressure of the gas decreases and as the volume of a gas decreases the pressure of the gas increases. For a gas, we can create two equations with $P_{1}$ as the initial pressure of the gas and $P_{2}$ as the final pressure of the gas. $V_{1}$= 22.8 L, $P_{1}$= 1.65 atm $V_{2}$= 10.7 L. $P_{1}$$V_{1} = P_{2}$$V_{2}$ rearrange the equation for $P_{2}$ $P_{2} = \frac{P_{1}V_{1}}{V_{2}}$ Plug in the values for the variables $P_{2} = \frac{1.65 atm \times 22.8 L }{10.7 L}$ Solve using a calculator $P_{2} = 3.52 atm$
