(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

People who are angry sometimes say that the feel as if they will explode. If a calm person with a lung capacity of 3.5L and a body temp of 36C gets angry, what will the volume of the persons lungs be if their temp rises to 39C.

2. Relevant equations

V1/T1 = v2/T2

3. The attempt at a solution

I did it like this:

Declared variables; v1=3.5L, v2 = *?*, T1 = 36C, T2=39C

put them into the formula; 39(3.5) = 36(V2)

and ended up getting 3.79L instead of the correct answer which is 3.53L.

Obviously I have zero idea of what I am doing if I get an answer wrong. Only answer if you understand what you're talking about. Thanks.
