An empty aerosol-spray can at room temperature (20 ◦C) is thrown into an incinerator where the temperature reaches 458◦C. If the gas inside the empty container was initially at a pressure of 1 atm, what pressure did it reach inside the incinerator? Assume the gas was at constant volume and the can did not explode.
Answer in units of atm.

  1. (P1/T1) = (P2/T2)
    Substitute and solve for P2. Remember T MUST be in kelvin.
