Default boil off

Hey guys
Im new in brewing and im on my 3rd batch and i got a question.
both time i brewed i made batches of 20L and in boiling 60 mins i lost 5-6L.
Now that im making a 40L batch will i lose 5-6L of wort again or double ??

Its maybe a stupid question but i really dont want to screw up my beer

If you use the same pot and boil at the same intensity, you will have the same boil-off regardless of the volume.
