Answer:## 36.09 L

Explanation:The initial volume can be found by using the formula for Boyle’s law which is

[tex]P_1V_1 = P_2V_2[/tex]

where

P1 is the initial pressure

P2 is the final pressure

V1 is the initial volume

V2 is the final volume.

Since we’re finding the initial volume

[tex]V_1 = \frac{P_2V_2}{P_1} \\[/tex]

We have

[tex]V_1 = \frac{7.98 \times 14.2}{3.14} = \frac{113.316}{3.14} \\ = 36.0878…[/tex]

We have the final answer as

## 36.09 L

Hope this helps you
