Homework Statement



A Cubic meter of a gas at STP is heated to 180 degrees celcius. The pressure acting on the gas is kept constant. What is the new volume?

Homework Equations



V1/T1=V2/T2

The Attempt at a Solution



Well, I plugged in the variables and came up with:
1/0=V2/180
Doing this though, results in a math error. Am I doing something wrong or is there another step?
