No more than what's listed as max recommended pressure on the tire sidewall. Apart from that you're free to try out what feels best when riding. Low pressure will increase the risk of bottoming out the tire(the rim striking the surface) which is an almost certain way of getting a snakebite AKA pinch flat.

What does a jammed knee feel like?

Imagine your leg was a flat inner tube. Imagine pumping air into that inner tube which slowly begins to fill up. With just enough air you can bend the tube in half with relative ease. Now Consider the joint where the inner tube bends as your knee joint - pumping too much air into the inner tube makes it difficult to bend the tube in half. In other words a sprained knee feels like your knee joint is filled with too much air making it difficult to achieve a full range of motion.

The valve is a one-way system. It allows the cyclist to inflate the inner tube with a pump - while preventing air from escaping.

Bicycle tire inner tubes tend to have 10-15 psi of air pressure, so the air tends to be the same temperature as the ambient air temperature.
