A diesel engine works at a high compression ratio to compress air until it reaches a temperature high enough to ignite the diesel fuel. Suppose the compression ratio (ratio of volumes) of a specific diesel engine is 19 to 1. If air enters a cylinder at 1 atm and is compressed adiabatically, the compressed air reaches a pressure of 66.0 atm. Assuming that the air enters the engine at room temperature (22.9C) and that the air can be treated as an ideal gas, find the temperature (in K) of the compressed air.
