# Finding the volume of this problem while using the Ideal Gas Law

I think I'm supposed to use the ideal gas law, but I can't figure out what values match with what variable. If someone could show me how to get to the answer that would be great!

## P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2

P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2

Let the '1' conditions be the higher altitude and the height does not come into the calculation)

So V1 = (P2V2T1)/(P1T2)

As temperature is constant

V1 = (P2V2)/(P1)
