The temperature, T, of a given mass of gas varies inversely with its volume, V. The temperature of 20 cm3 of a certain gas is 15°C. What will the temperature be when it is compressed to a volume of 5 cm3?
• 10°C
• 300°C
• 6.67°C
• 60°C

1. since TV = k is constant,

T(5) = (15)(20)

In the real world, T is usually in Kelvin degrees.
