Question

An arctic weather balloon is filled with 40.7 L of helium gas inside a prep shed. The temperature inside the shed is 7.°C. The balloon is then taken outside, where the temperature is −11.°C. Calculate the new volume of the balloon.You may assume the pressure on the balloon stays constant at exactly 1atm. Round your answer to 3 significant digits.
