#### Solution Preview

See attached graph.

Because,

P1 = atmospheric pressure = 14.7 psi

P2 = 200 psig (psi puage) = 200 +14.7 psi = 214.7 psi

T1 = 68 degree F = 273 + (5/9)*(68-32) = 293 K

T2 <= 68+25 F = 273 + (5/9)*(68+25 - 32)

=> T2 <= 307 K,

Now,

Gas law:

P1*V1/T1 = P2*V2/T2

=> 14.7 * ...
