Ideal Gas Volume Question

An Ideal Gas occupies a Volume of 6.00 L at STP. What is its Gauge pressure (in kPa) if the Volume is doubled and the Temperature is increased to 50.0 Degrees Celcius. I dont know where to begine as the question doesnt have a starting Temp, just that it was increased to 50 Degrees Celcius. Any help is greatly appreciated!

STP stands for standard temperature and pressure. it is 0 degrees C and 1 atm.

Do you have an equation for me that might help?

The Ideal Gas Law should cover this.

The Ideal Gas law says in an Ideal Gas in a closed system the following relation always holds constant,

[tex] PV = nRT [/tex]

P = Pressure
V = Volume
n = number of moles
R = The gas constant
T = Temperature (KELVIN)
