Homework Help: Finding rate of oxygen consumption

  1. Jan 13, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Calculate the actual rate of oxygen consumption (ml/min/g @ STP) to one decimal place from the following information:
    Specific rate of oxygen consumption: 8.2 ml/min/g
    Temperature of room: 21 C
    Atmospheric Pressure of room: 76 mm of Hg

    a. 0.4
    b. 0.6
    c. 0.8

    2. Relevant equations

    V1 is the 8.2 ml/min/g
    T1 = 21 + 273 = 294
    P1= 76 mm of Hg

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Following the equation, I get 2.12, which is not one of the answers...

    Thanks for helping me..
