Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Jonathan T on Saturday, March 22, 2008 at 7:28pm.

a 3.0L helium balloon is placed in a car sitting in hot sunlight. The temperature in the mall, when the balloon was bought, was 22C. The temperature in the car is 45C.
what will be the new volume of the of the balloon.
Will it be: 6.14L?

I would think this looks right but the only thing that confuses me, is that I think the volume should actually decrease, not increase.
Please Help
Thanks
