The volume after the increase in temperature will be 77 L.

#### Explanation:

This is an example of Charles' law which states that at constant pressure, the volume of a gas varies directly with the temperature in Kelvins. This means that when the volume increases, so does the temperature and vice versa. The equation to use is

**Solution**

Rearrange the equation to isolate
