#### Explanation:

To answer this question, we will need to assume the following:

- Chlorine gas is behaving ideally, so we can use the ideal gas law:
#PV=nRT# - During the process, the pressure is remaining constant.

Since we are heating the ballon, the number of mole is not changing and therefore,

Thus

Therefore, chlorine will occupy a volume of
