So i looked up Boyle's and it said(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

PV = C

P= pressure

V= Volume

C= constant

so my question is

Suppose 38 pounds of books were balanced on a syringe plunger with a cross-section area of 0.45 in^2?

A) how much pressure would just the books exert on the trapped air sample?

so would this be correct

P= 38/0.45= 84.4 psi

im not sure if 38 is the constant or even if im using the right formula for this problem. thanks guys
