A quantity of gas has a volume of 0.20 cubic meter and an absolute temperature of 333 degrees kelvin. When the temperature of the gas is raised to 533 degrees kelvin, what is the new volume of the gas? (Assume that there's no change in pressure.)

    assuming the gas is ideal, we can use the Charles' Law:
    V1 / T1 = V2 / T2
    V1 = initial volume of gas
    T1 = initial temp of gas
    V2 = final volume of gas
    T2 = final temp of gas
    substituting the values to the equation,
    0.20 / 333 = V2 / 533
    V2 = 0.20*533/333
    V2 = 0.32 cubic meter

    hope this helps~ :)
