Homework Statement



Gas temperature 30C, volume 20cm3 and pressure 2*10^5. We have isothermal change and volume goes to 27cm3, whats the change of pressure?


Homework Equations



pV=nRT

The Attempt at a Solution



(20*10^-6*2*10^5)/30 and then we get constant. p1*V1=const -> p1=const/V1

Note that the temperature must be in units of K i.e.(30 + 273).

But one does not need the value of temperature. Just use PV = constant.
