Pressure and Temperature

APPH12-3EFVSK

A sample of ideal gas in a closed rigid container is initially at a pressure of $6{,}000 \text{ Pa}$ and temperature of $30^{\circ}\text{C}$. The temperature of the gas is increased to some new final temperature, causing the pressure to increase to $12{,}000 \text{ Pa}$.

Which one of the following is closest to the final temperature of the sample?

A

$-120^{\circ}\text{C}$

B

$15^{\circ}\text{C}$

C

$60^{\circ}\text{C}$

D

$330^{\circ}\text{C}$
