    Answer: 22368.4 Liters

    Explanation:

    Initial Volume of gas V1 = 20000 liters

    Initial pressure of gas P1 = 850 torr

    Final volume V2 = ?

    Final (standard) pressure P2 = 760 torr

    Apply the formula for Boyle's law:

    P1V1 = P2V2

    850torr x 20000L = 760torr x V2

    V2 = (850torr x 20000L) / 760torr

    V2 = (17000000) / 760torr

    V2 = 22368.4L

    Thus, the volume of the gas at standard pressure is 22368.4 Liters
