Application of Charles's Law (one of the derived basic gas laws) to calculate volume at a different temperature.

A certain mass of calcium carbide, CaC2, reacts completely with water to produce 64.5 L of acetylene, C2H2, at 50 degrees C and 1 atm. If the same reactants react completely at 300 degrees C and 1 atm, what will be the volume of acetylene?
