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

A certain amount of gas at 298.15 K and at a pressure of 0.800 atm is contained in a glass vessel. suppose that the vessel can withstand a pressure of 2.00 atm. How high can you raise the termperature of the gas without bursting the vessel.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]PV=nRT[/tex]

Since the amount of gas remains constant:

[tex]R=\frac{P_1V_1}{T_1}=\frac{P_2V_2}{T_2}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

Obviously I don't have enough information to fill this in directly. Ideal gas problems are usually very simple, but this one stumped me. I don't see how I can solve for [tex]T_2[/tex]
