Does anyone know how many volumes of Co2 will dissolve in beer per gravity unit at a specific temperature?

I'm thinking of bottling a beer with a brettanomyces and bacterial blend that will hopefully consume all residual sugars. I'm currently at 1.010 and and wondering how many volumes of C02 I'll end up with if this thing finishes around 1.002. It will probably be stored around 60F.

2.5 volumes of CO2 is equivalent to a change in specific gravity of .002-.003. You'll get bottle bombs if you bottle at 1.010 and expect it to finish at 1.002.
