The second volume will be 240 mL.

#### Explanation:

This is an example of Boyle's law, which states that the volume of a given amount of a gas kept at constant temperature varies inversely with the pressure. In other words, if the volume increases, the pressure decreases, and vice versa. The equation to use is

**Given**

**Unknown**

**Solution**

Rearrange the equation to isolate
