The pressure is **32kPa.**

#### Explanation:

Let's identify our known and unknown variables.

The first volume we have is

We can obtain the answer using Boyle's Law which shows that there is an inverse relationship between pressure and volume as long as the temperature and number of moles remain constant.

We will use this equation:

All we have to do is rearrange the equation to solve for

We do this by dividing both sides by

Now all we have to do is plug in the given values:
