Relative humidity= 40%
Initial volume of vapor V1=10cm3=10.
Let saturation vapor pressure be Po
So, initial pressure of vapours= P1=0.4Po
As mentioned in question, final stage comes when vapours start to condense.
When vapor starts to condense, relative humidity becomes 100% and vapor pressure attains the maximum pressure called saturation vapor pressure.
So final pressure of vapor P2=Po
Since the process is isothermal, temperature remains constant throughout. Applying Boyle’s law which states that PV=constant, if temperature is constant.
the volume of the vapour at which it will start condensing is 410-6m3
