# The gas inside of a container exerts #16 Pa# of pressure and is at a temperature of #430 ^o K#. If the temperature of the gas changes to #150 ^oC# with no change in the container's volume, what is the new pressure of the gas?

#### Explanation:

**Gay-Lussac's law:** For a given mass and constant volume of an ideal gas, the pressure exerted on the sides of its container is directly proportional to its absolute temperature.

Mathematically,

#P ∝ T#
