Pure helium gas is contained in a leakproof cylinder containing a moveable piston. The initial volume, pressure, and temperature of the gas are 15 L, 2.0 atm, and 310 K, respectively. If the gas is rapidly compressed to 12 L and the pressure increases to 3.5 atm, find the final temperature of the gas.
