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

Suppose an aerosol can contains a residual pressure of 755mm Hg and a temperature of 25*c. What would the pressure be if the can was heated to 1155*c?

2. Relevant equations

P_{1}xV_{1}=P_{2}xV_{2}

V[tex]\propto[/tex]T

3. The attempt at a solution

I began by converting the 755mm Hg to atm, .993atm. I then converted the temperatures to 298 kelvins & 1428 kelvins. I honestly do not know where to take this problem from here. The above equations I gave deal with temperature & pressure seperately so I need to find some way of combining them. All I need is a nudge, I can take it from there. Thanks in advance.
