## Homework Statement

Given a problem where air expands adiabatically with a given initial temperature, initial pressure, final pressure, and gamma (ratio of specific heats) , how would one go about solving for the final temperature? I'm just eager to get a general sense of direction.

## Homework Equations

##PV^\gamma = constant##

(but it doesn't feel particularly useful since volume isn't provided)

##\frac{P_i V_i}{T_i}=\frac{P_f V_f}{T_f}##

(but again, I'm not sure what to do in the absence of volume)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Just looking for a sense of direction. I guess that either the volume can be ignored/cancelled or there is an equation that doesn't require volume.
