Pressure and Volume

  1. Mar 17, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A Cubic meter of a gas at STP is heated to 180 degrees celcius. The pressure acting on the gas is kept constant. What is the new volume?

    2. Relevant equations

    V1/T1=V2/T2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Well, I plugged in the variables and came up with:
    1/0=V2/180
    Doing this though, results in a math error. Am I doing something wrong or is there another step?

    Temperature should be in kelvin.
