  1. You can use the gas laws

    P1/T1 = P2/T2

    You have to use degrees Kelvin

    Change C to K by adding 273.

  2. P1/T1 = P2/T2

    P1 = 3.0 ATM
    T1 = 20+273 = 293K

    P2 = ?
    T2 = -33+273=240

    3.0/293 = P2/240

    P2 =(3.0/293)*240

    P2 = 2.457337
    = 2.46 ATM

  3. I don't know the answer but you TOTALLY must be in my physics class haha. Physics for Life Science?
