#### Answer:

The original volume was 475 mL.

#### Explanation:

Since only the pressure changes, we can use **Boyle's Law** to solve this problem.

Boyle's Law is

#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)p_1V_1 = p_2V_2color(white)(a/a)|)))" "#

We can rearrange Boyle's Law to get

#V_1 = V_2 × p_2/p_1#

In this problem,

∴
