This can only occur at a temperature of 240.5 kelvin (-32.6 °C).

#### Explanation:

For an ideal gas, the relationship among pressure, volume, quantity and temperature is the ideal gas law

This essentially tells us that if we specify any three of

Using the values stated in this problem,

The only temperature for which the stated conditions could exist would be at a temperature of 240.5 kelvin (-32.6 °C).
