    8 liter of air volume, ambient temp, then compressed at 8.2 bar = volume in cu cm?

    Re: volume

    PV=nRT approximately. I suppose T remains constant, n and R are constants. Thus if you go from 1 bar to 8.2 bar, then volume goes from 8 liters to 8/8.2 liters... Multiply by 1000 to get it in cm cubes.

    Didn't Petr Mugver practically gave you the answer already? Or did you not understand what you were given?

    propably did not understand it :(
    I read as if he increased the volume...I want to decrease the volume by pressurizing it
