Answer:

The final volume is double the initial volume.

Explanation:

You can use Boyle's law, which states that pressure is inversely related to volume when other variables are held constant.
#P1*V1=P2*V2#
If the final pressure of a gas is half of the initial, the volume must double if temperature is to remain the same.
