Answer:

The combined gas law holds that #(P_1V_1)/T_1=(P_2V_2)/T_2#. The amount of gas is assumed to be constant.

Explanation:

And so #P_2=(P_1V_1T_2)/(T_1V_2).#

The RHS expression clearly has the units of pressure as required, why?

#P_2=(1.13*atmxx2.25*cancelLxx302*cancelK)/(286*cancelKxx1.89*cancelL)=??atm#
