The pressure value changes 400 % relative to the initial value.

Explanation:

Let suppose that the gas behaves ideally and represents a closed system, that is, a system with no mass interactions so that number of moles is conserved (). Since the variables involved in the isothermal process are pressure () and volume (). Finally, the process is represented by the following relationship:

(1)

Where:

– Initial and final pressures.

– Initial and final volumes.

If we know that , and , then the final pressure of the closed system is:

The pressure value changes 400 % relative to the initial value.
