Boyle’s Law Formula :

Boyle’s law formula is pressure of the gas P1 (pa) in pascal and multiply the volume of the container V1(m2) in meter2 is equal to the pressure of the gas p2(pa) in pascal and multiply the volume of the gas V2(m2) in meter2.Hence the Boyle’s law formula can be written as

P1 (pa)*  V1(m2) = p2(pa) * V2(m2)

P2= p1 * V1 / v2 or p2 /p1= v1 / V2

Pand  V1  are the initial pressure and volume of the gas

Pand  V2 are the final pressure and volume of the gas

P= pressure of the gas

V= volume of the container

Example:1

Calculate the temperature and quantity of gas are constant? A fixed amount of gas occupies a volume of 4L and exerts a pressure of 500 kpa on the wall of its container. What would be the pressure exerted by the gas on being  completely transferred to a new container of volume 4liters.

Solution:

Given that;

Initial volume V1=4L

Initial pressure p1=500kpa

Final volume v2=4L

As per Boyle’s law p1 * V1 = p2 * V2

p2= p1 * V1 / V2

p2=500 *4 /4 =500 kpa

Therefore, the  gas exterts a pressure of 500kpa on the walls of the 4 liters container.

Example:2

Calculate the temperature and quantity of gas are constant? A fixed amount of gas occupies a volume of 8L and exerts a pressure of 600 kpa on the wall of its container. What would be the pressure exerted by the gas on being  completely transferred to a new container of volume 2liters.

Solution:

Given that;

Initial volume V1=8L

Initial pressure p1=600kpa

Final volume v2=2L

As per Boyle’s law p1 * V1 = p2 * V2

p2= p1 * V1 / V2

p2=600 *8 /2 =1200 kpa

Therefore, the  gas exterts a pressure of 1200kpa on the walls of the 2 liters container.
