The volume of the tank is 53 L.

#### Explanation:

We can use the **Ideal Gas Law** to calculate the volume.

The Ideal Gas Law is:

#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)PV = nRTcolor(white)(a/a)|)))" "#

where

#P# is the pressure#V# is the volume#n# is the number of moles#R# is the gas constant#T# is the temperature

We can rearrange the Ideal Gas Law to get

#V = (nRT)/P#
