calculating delta S

why is (V2/V1) equal to (P1/P2)?

Re: calculating delta S

You can set P1V1 = P2V2 according to the Boyle’s Law, and then from there you can just divide out, which leads to:
P1/P2 = V2/V1

Re: calculating delta S

Boyle's Law states that P1V1=P2V2 and by rearranging the equation, you are left with V2/V1 = P1/P2.

Re: calculating delta S

Using the ideal gas law, or Boyle's law, where PV=nRT, P and V are inversely proportional which is why V2/V1=P1/P2.

Re: calculating delta S

Pressure and volume are inversely proportional so (P1/P2) = (V2/V1).
