The highest possible pressure will occur at the lowest possible volume. Thus, using the equation for pressure given in the problem, we find that the pressure is: $P = (1)(\sqrt{\frac{17}{8.7}})=1.39 \ atm$ Thus, the pressure requirement is met. We also know that the lowest volume will occur at the highest pressure. Thus, it follows: $1.5 = (1)(\sqrt{\frac{17}{V}}) \\ V=7.56 \ m^3$ The criteria are not met, for this is less than $8.7 \ m^3$.
