Step 1

1 of 2As per Boyle's law, for a given amount of gas held at a constant temperature, the product of pressure and volume is constant\

$P_1V_1 = P_2V_2$

where P$_1$ and V$_1$ represent the initial conditions, and P$_2$ and V$_2$ represent new conditions.

Given P$_1$ = 99.0 $\mathrm{kPa}$, P$_2$ = 188 $\mathrm{kPa}$ and V$_1$ = 300 $\mathrm{mL}$, we can calculate:

$V_2 = \dfrac{\text{P$_1$V$_1$}}{\text{P$_2$}} = \dfrac{300 \times 99}{188} = 158 \mathrm{mL}$
