  1. I hope you may have learned about the Ideal gas equation(PV=nRT), where P=Pressure of the gas , V=Volume of the gas , n=amount of gas/substance(in moles) , R= Universal gas constant , T= Absolute Temperature of the gas

    We use this equation for the calculations regarding real gasses,assuming they are ideal gasses.

    So in this case, n is a constant and the product of PV is directly propotional to T(as R is a constant).

    So (PV)/T =nR(and it is a constant)

    So simply substitute values for the left side of the equation, in these two cases and equate them to find the required volume.

    Hope this helps.
