An ideal gas is contained in a cylinder with a volume of 5.0 102 mL at a temperature of 30.°C and a pressure of 710. torr. The gas is then compressed to a volume of 27 mL, and the temperature is raised to 800.°C. What is the new pressure of the gas?

bobpursley,
Change temps to kelvins
P2V2/T2=P1V1/T1
solve for P2

libby,
im confused on what numbers need to be plugged into the equation

chemistry 
DrBob222,
Then write them down in columns
P1.....V1......P2.......V2....T1.....T2
then substitute into the equation.

libby,
okay so its (710)(500)/(303)=p2(27)/1073
then i multiply? 
chemistry 
DrBob222,
Yes, solve for P2. You multiply AND divide to do that.
