    At the start of a trip, a driver adjusts the absolute pressure in her tires to be 2.81 x 10^5 Pa when the outdoor temperature is 284 K. At the end of the trip she measures the pressure to be 3.01 x 10^5 Pa. Ignoring the expansion of the tires, find the air temperature inside the tires at the end of the trip.
