#### Answer:

The new temperature will be

#### Explanation:

This is an example of Guy-Lussac's law which states that the pressure of a given amount of gas held at constant volume is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature. So if the pressure increases, so will the temperature and vice versa.

The equation is:
