    A mole of a gas at STP (0deg C and 1 atmosphere) always occupy the same volume, about 22.4litres.
    The volume expands linearly with absolute temperature and decreases linearly with pressure.
    Call back if you need more hints.

    1. Questions like this belong in the Homework & Coursework area (near the top of the forum main page);
    2. We typically require you to first show some effort before we can help you.
