Gas at room temperature and pressure is confined to a cylinder by a piston. The piston is now pushed in so as to reduce the volume to one-eighth of its original value. After the gas temperature has returned to room temperature, what is the gauge pressure of the gas in kPa? Local atmospheric pressure is 740 mm of mercury.
