Answer:

I think #m^3#

Explanation:

In the gas law stuff, there is a gas constant, R, in which R=8.134 J/molK

A Joule has units of #(kgxxm^2)/(s^2)#

R = #"PV"/"nT"#, and the moles and temp cancel from the gas constant, so that means
#(kgxxm^2)/(s^2)# = PV

Pressure is in Newtons, #"F"/m^2#, or #"kg*m"/(m^2s^2)"#

#(kgxxm^2)/(s^2)# = #"kg*m"/(m^2s^2)#V

If you solve for V, you get #m^3#
That was the round-about way of doing it, but I know energy is Joules and Pressure is Newtons...so obviously should use the ideal gas law :)
