If 2.4 m3 of a gas initially at STP is compressed to 1.6 m3 and its temperature raised to 30oC, what is the final pressure?

Where T is in the absolute (Kelvin) temperature scale. At STP, T1 = 273 K and P1 = 1.01 x 10^5 Pa. And V1 = 2.4 m^3. We know V2 = 1.6 m^3 and T2 = 273 K + 30 K = 303 K. So -Dan
