A sample of gas in a closed container at a temperature of 83C and a pressure of 9 atm is heated to 259C. What pressure does the gas exert at the higher temperature? Answer in units of atm

(P1/T1) = (P2/T2) Remember T must be in kelvin.

i got 6.023

I don't think so. 273 + 83 = 356K 273 + 259 = 532K (9/56) = (P2/532) P2 = not 6.023. More like 13.44 atm rounded to the correct number of significant figures.
