1. Homework Statement
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. Homework Equations

(P1V1)/T1
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..

Actually, I did the following and found an answer similar to what we are given.
Would that be correct?
(21*273*8.2)/(760*76)=0.8.
