Using Boyle's Gas Law to Find a Pressure

CHEM-YHDMFL

An ideal gas with a constant temperature of $300\text{ K}$ is compressed from $3.2\text{ L}$ to $1.4\text{ L}$.

If the initial pressure was $4.5\text{ atm}$, what is the resulting pressure of the gas following the compression?

A

$10\text{ atm}$

B

$8.7\text{ atm}$

C

$1.0\text{ atm}$

D

$9.6\text{ atm}$
