If the volume is 6 cubic centimeters when the pressure on the gas is 8 kilograms per square centimeter, then what is the volume when the pressure is 12 kilograms per square centimeter? Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The volume of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure on the gas. v = k/p --------------- If the volume is 6 cubic centimeters when the pressure on the gas is 8 kilograms per square centimeter, 6 = k/8 k = 48 Equation: v = 48/p --------------- then what is the volume when the pressure is 12 kilograms per square centimeter? v = 48/12 v = 4 cubic centimeters ========================= Cheers, Stan H.
