# I Calculate temperature after adiabatic compression of He

Question: find the temperature of Helium gas compressed from 1 atm and 300K to 10 atm.

Internal energy of diatomic Helium gas is U = 5/2 n kT since it's diatomic.

Also, P = nkT

Since n and k are constants, and pressure is ten times greater, does that mean that temperature is also ten times greater (so 3000K)?
