Aerodynamics - Perfect Gas Law

Q: If 1500lb of air is pumped into a previously empty 900ft^3 storage tank and the air temperature in the tank is uniformly 70 F, what is the air pressure in the tank in atmospheres?

Is it possible to solve this with the perfect gas law (PV = nRT)? Also, please brief description of the difference between the Ideal Gas Law and the Perfect Gas Law.
