a)the change cannot be determined without more specific information

b)it will decrease by a factor of 2

c)it will increase by a factor of 4

d)no change

e)it will double

**would it be d? since the pressure is doubled, the volume would be halved. and if the temperature is double it would double the halved volume, bringing it back to where it was in the beginning. Would that be right?

**DrBob222**, Friday, November 6, 2009 at 5:45pmYes, that's reasoning.

You may want to try it with the formula.

PV = nRT

Solve for V.

V = nRT/P

V = nR*2T/2P

The 2s cancel so the V is the same.
