Step 1

1 of 2$\textbf{Given:}$

$V_1=1200 \text{ ft}^3$

$V_2=600 \text{ ft}^3$

$T_1=70 ^\circ \text{ F}=530 ^\circ \text{R}$

To solve the problem we use Charles's law which reads:

$\dfrac{V_1}{T_1}=\dfrac{V_2}{T_2}$

From it we express $T_2$ and by entering the data given in the task we get the result:

$\begin{align*} T_2&=\dfrac{V_2 \cdot T_1}{V_1}\\ &=\dfrac{600 \cdot 530}{1200}\\ &\boxed{T_2=265^\circ \text{R} } \end{align*}$
