Answer

No, this would halve the gas pressure

Work Step by Step

The gas law is PV = nRT If we double the volume and keep the temperature constant then we have V = 2V so: P(2V) = nRT In order to balance both sides, we need to double the right side or halve the left side but we are told T is constant so we would have: (1/2 P)(2V) = nRT Therefore, this would halve the gas pressure
