#### Answer:

The volume will quadruple (i.e. become 4 times the original volume).

#### Explanation:

The combined gas law states that

Let's say

That means that

Now, let's plug in all of these variables and solve for

#(PV)/T = ((1/2P)V_2)/(2T)#

#(PV)/T = (PV_2)/(4T)#

#(color(red)cancelPV)/color(blue)cancelT = (color(red)cancelPV_2)/(4color(blue)cancelT)#

#V = V_2/4#

#4V = V_2#

Therefore, the volume will quadruple.
