Thermodynamics - isochoric situation

    I'm trying to calculate the final pressure. I was given initial and final temperatures as well as initial pressure, expansitivy and isothermal bulk modulus. I was also told the volume is constant.

    Since volume is constant I figured dV=0

    so in the formula dV=VβdT - VKdP it reduces to:

    βdT=KdP

    I know that I need to solve for dP but I think I'm doing something wrong in my integral because I end up with the final pressure being the same as the initial pressure which I know is wrong. How do I solve that equation for dP?
