Forgive me for my ignorance, but I havent had a formal thermodynamics class. I believe that the temperature of air increases as it is compressed, but I would like to know by how much. Is there a formula based on volume, intake air temp, and compression amount? Basically I'd like to know how hot the air is when compressed to 120psi. If my calculations are correct, it would need to compress about 6 cubic feet of air per second.
