The Ideal Gas Law

At the start of a trip, a driver adjusts the absolute pressure in her tires to be 2.82*10^5 Pa when the outdoor temperature is 286 K. At the end of the trip she measures the pressure to be 2.98*10^5 Pa. Ignoring the expansion of the tires, find the air temperature inside the tires at the end of the trip.

Solution Preview

The ideal gas law is PV = nRT

Since there is no expansion, V is a constant and thus we can write the law ...
