A sample of gas in a balloon has an initial temperature of 43∘C and a volume of 1.69×103L . If the temperature changes to 76∘C , and there is no change of pressure or amount of gas, what is the new volume, V2, of the gas?

It's known as Charles's law; see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles%27s_law for example.

At constant pressure the volume will be proportional to the absolute temperature.

V2/(273+76) = 1690/(273+43)    (i've assumed your 1.69x103L means 1.69x103L)

Can you take it from here?

I didn't know that,  thanks Alan.
