(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

0.54 mol of argon gas is admitted to an evacuated 90 cm^{3}container at 10^{o}C. The gas then undergoes an isochoric heating to a temperature of 400^{o}C.

What is the final pressure of the gas (in kPa)?

2. Relevant equations

PV = nRT

3. The attempt at a solution

P(9.0x10^{-5}m^{3}) = (.54 mol)(8.314 m^{3}Pa/K mol)(673 K)

P = 33,571,932 Pa = 33,571.932 kPa

This number just seems way too large to me, which is why I'm questioning it. Thanks for any help you can provide!
