Relationships between cellular respiration, pressure & volume

If you have one group of kids in Denver [group A] (lower pressure, lower temperatures) and another group of kids in New Orleans [group B] (higher pressure, higher temperatures) and they performed an aerobic respiration in a lentils experiment, how could their results be made similar or comparable?

Use the chemical Gas Law equation pV=nRT where p is pressure, V is volume, n is the amount of molecules (in moles), T is the temperature (in Kelvin), and R is the Gas constant which doesn't change.

In Group A, p and T are low, and in Group B p and T ...
