Homework Help: Did i solve this equation for temperature right?

  1. Dec 9, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    How would i solve this equation for temperature?
    P= (0.4887 psi/*c)T + 13.80 psi.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    to solve for temperature would i divide p like this?
    T= 0.4887psi/*c + 13.80psi/P

    I know it's a simple problem, i just wanna make sure i'm doing it correctly?

    Hi livblue23! :smile:
    Nooo …

    always start by shoving everything around so that T is the only thing on one side:

    P - 13.80 psi = (0.4887 psi/*c)T

    and then … ? :smile:
