A compartment measures 3.5 meters by 5.5 meters and is 3 meters high. A fire raises the temperature from 68 F to 1500 F. If the starting pressure was 1 atmosphere, what volume is present at the elevated temperature assuming the compartment has openings to reduce pressure?

The gas originally in the compartment will expand to a larger volume,
V' = Vo * (1500 + 460)/(68 + 460) = ___
Vo = 3.5 * 5.5 * 3.0 = ___ m^3
The 460 numbers are there to convert to absolute Rankine temperatures.
