A compressed gas has a pressure of 4.882 atm at a temperature of 8° C. The next day, the same container of gas has a pressure of 4.690 atm. What is the new temperature?
The new temperature will be
This is an example of Gay-Lussac's law, which states that when volume is kept constant, the pressure is directly proportional to the temperature in Kelvins.
The equation is
Rearrange the equation to isolate
