Hi, thank you for postingyour question here at Brainly.
This problem can be solved by using Charles' Law when volume is kept constant. Remember that the ideal gas equation is: PV=nRT. So when V is constant, it gets lumped with nR such that P/T = V/nR = k. Thus,
P1/T1 = P2/T2
(101.5 kPa)/(300K) = (305 kPa)/T2
T2 = 901.5 K
