For #9, will I always get the right answer if I take the volume (32), divide it by the pressure (4), and multiply it by the rate (2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't think so. I'm pretty sure that's an artifact of \(2^2=4\). Or something similar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, if we do the actual problem out, we get that \(c=128\). Then, we have that \[dV=\;{128 \over P^2} dP\]We know that \(dP =2\) and \(P=4\). Solving, we find that \(dV =16\). So really, it seems like it's because everything is just a power of two.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For a counterexample, let \(V=40\). Then we get that \(dV =35/2\) using the method I wrote out. Using your hypothetical method, we get that it would be \(20\).
