Find volume of methane gas - Boyles Law - Chemistry problem solver

Some kind of Bacteria produce methane gas. It is used in several purposes. This gas is often captured or burned.If a bacterial culture produces 60.0 mL (initial volume) of methane gas at 700.0 mm Hg (initial pressure), what volume (final volume) would be produced at 760.0 mm Hg (final pressure) ?


initial volume = 60
initial pressure = 700
final pressure = 760
V2 =  ( P1 * V1 ) / P2
final volume = ( 700 * 60 ) / 760
final volume = 55.2632
So the final volume is 55.2632

Boyles Law :

When the pressure of the gas increases the volume of the gas decreases at constant pressure.

Boyles law Formulas :

P1 =  ( P2 * V2 ) / V1

V1 =  ( P2 * V2 ) / P1

P2 =  ( P1 * V1 ) / V2

V2 =  ( P1 * V1 ) / P2


where,

P1 = initial pressure
P2 = final pressure
V1 = initial volume
V2 = final volume
