Expert Answer:

Given:
 
V1 = 3 lit
 
V2 = ?
 
T1 = 15 °C
 
    = 15+ 273= 288 K
 
T2 = (-73)°
    = -73+273 = 200 K
 
According to Charles's law,
 
straight V subscript 1 over straight T subscript 1 space equals space straight V subscript 2 over straight T subscript 2

3 over 288 space equals space straight V subscript 2 over 200

straight V subscript 2 space equals space fraction numerator 3 cross times 200 over denominator 288 end fraction

straight V subscript 2 space equals space 2.08 space lit
 
The volume of a gas is 2.08 lit.
