Hello I have a question to have a better understanding of Boyle-Mariotte's law!

if the gas pressure doubles, how does the volume vary? and I would like to have the explanation of the answer also please

thank you

    Hello Alert Mosquito!

    Thank you for your question!

    Boyle-Mariotte's law states that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume. Thus, the pressure is doubled, the volume of gas undergoes the reverse change, then it is halved. In fact, to increase the pressure, the gas must be compressed, so the volume must therefore be reduced.
