The volume of a sample of gas at 273 K is 100.0 L. If the volume is decreased to 50.0 L at constant pressure, what will be the new temperature of the gas?

Ideal gas equation is PV = nRT.
V/T = nR/P = constant.
Therefore, (V/T)initial = (V/T)final.
100/273 = 50/T
T = 50 x 273/100=136.5 K.
Hope this helps!
