A diesel engine takes in 0.5 moles of air at 20.0C and at atmospheric pressure. It then compresses it adiabatically to one twentieth of its original volume.

which means n = 0.5
T = 20
and Vfinal = V1/20

but where do I go from here?
can anyone help?

1.    Obtain the final temperature, pressure and volume of the compressed air?

this is the actual question part:)

Compressing gases requires work and the resulting energy is usually converted to heat; if this heat does not escape, the gas's temperature will rise. This effect is used in diesel engines: The compressed air gets so hot that when
