Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You keep the temperature constant, as well as the number of moles so nRT = a constant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then you want to know how a change in volume will affect the pressure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[P _{1}V _{1} = P _{2}V _{2}\] this is what you get now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1may have to think about it this way dw:1438032347186:dw which one has the greater volume?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a bigger volume means that the (gas) has more space to move around

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and think of pressure as the amount of times that the gas molecules hit the walls of the container.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if something has a bigger volume, that's more space so what happens to pressure?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1438032627030:dw with that said which container would have more pressure if the number if we keep the amount of gas the same?
