##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

No change in volume.

#### Explanation:

We can use the Ideal Gas Equation to solve this question:

#P# is pressure in#"Pa"# #V# is volume in#"m"^3# #n# is number of moles of gas#R# is the universal gas constant,#"8.31 J/K mol"# #T# is temperature in Kelvin

In your scenario, when mass is fixed, the number of moles will be fixed, too. So we can combine both constant terms

where

Now, since we want to work out how volume changes, let's put

So from the equation, we can deduce that when temperature and pressure are both doubled, the Volume

Hope this helps!
