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

Three moles of an ideal gas are compressed from 5.5 * 10^-2 to 2.8 * 10^-2 m3. During the compression, 6.5 * 10^3 J of work is done on the gas, and heat is removed to keep the temperature of the gas constant at all times.

Find the temperature of the gas.

2. Relevant equations

pv=nRT

3. The attempt at a solution

I plugged in to the above equation so I have p(.028)=3(8.31)T but I don't know how to solve this since there are two variables.
