# Ideal Gas equation: Increase in air pressure.

A bicycle tire is filled with air to a pressure of 107 psi at a temperature of 19°C. Riding the bike on asphalt on a hot day increases the temperature of the tire to 58°C. The volume of the tire increases by 4.4%. What is the new pressure in the bicycle tire?

Pressure of Tire

A bicycle tire is filled with air to a pressure of 107 psi at a temperature of 19°C. Riding the bike on asphalt on a hot day increases the temperature of the tire to 58°C. The volume of the tire increases by 4.4%. What is the new pressure in the bicycle tire?

The ideal gas equation gives the relation between the pressure P, absolute temperature ...

#### Solution Summary

Pressure of the air in bike tire is calculated with increased temperature and volume are examined.
