884.5 K

#### Explanation:

1) Convert 40 °C to Kelvin and you get 273 + 40 = 313 K .At this temperature the volume of the gas is 2.3 L.

2) At Temperature

Remember that you have to plug into the equation in a very specific way. The temperatures and volumes come in connected pairs and you must put them in the proper place.

Using Charles law equation;

plug in the values;

2.3 L / 313 K = 6.5 L /

Cross-multiply and divide:

2.3 L x (

2.3 L x (
