    Solution Preview

    In the present problem following data is given :

    Initial temperature T1 = 14.9OC = 14.9 + 273 = 287.9 K

    Final temperature T2 = 37.5OC = 37.5 + 273 = 310.5 K

    Initial pressure P1 = 231 kPa = 231 x 103 Pa

    Final pressure P2 = Initial pressure P1 ...

    Solution Summary

    Problem is solved with application of perfect gas equation.
