An enclosed gas exerts a pressure P on the walls of a container. This pressure is directly proportional to the temperature T of the gas, measured in Kelvin. If the pressure is 7 lb per square inch when the temperature is 420°K, find the constant of variation.

420 F must be converted to degrees absolute = 420+460 = 880 degrees absolute P = kT 7 = k * 880 k = 7/880
