Answer:

We use Boyle's law: gas volume is inversely proportional to pressure at constant temperature (and constant amount of gas). The answer should be approx. #100# #mL#.

Explanation:

#P_1V_1 = P_2V_2#.

#V_2 = (P_1V_1)/P_2# #=# # ((1.08*cancel(atm))(145.7*mL))/(1.43*cancel(atm))# #=# #???mL#

Reasonably, the volume SHOULD decrease.
