## Homework Statement

One cylinder in the diesel engine of a truck has an initial volume of 600 cm^3. Air is admitted to the cylinder at 35 C and a pressure of 1.0 atm. The piston rod then does 500 J of work to rapidly compress the air. What is the final temperature and volume?

I found the final temperature to be 1000C, but I can't find the final volume

## Homework Equations

PV^y=PV^y

W=deltaE

deltaE=nCv(change in temp)

y=1.4

PV=nRT

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know, honestly. It's maddening not to even know what to do or where to start.

Help?

Thank you.
