    Answer:

    Explanation:

    Heat capacity = mass x specific heat

    heat capacity ∝ mass

    ∝ volume

    heat capacity ∝ volume

    H₁ / H₂ = V₁ / V₂

    H₁ and H₂ are heat capacity corresponding to volume V₁ and V₂.

    312 / 100000  = 1 / V₂

    V₂ = 100000 / 312

    = 320.51 cubic foot.
