Answer:

#T_1=450K#

Explanation:

Since the gas it is getting compressed with a change on temperature, we consider that the pressure is constant, and of course the number of mole is constant (same gas), therefore, from the ideal gas law #PV=nRT# we can say:

#V/T=" constant"#

Therefore, #(V_1)/(T_1)=(V_2)/(T_2)=>T_1=V_1xx(T_2)/(V_2)#

#=>T_1=12cancel(L)xx(300K)/(8cancel(L))=450K#
