    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.

    David:
    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.
