The solubility of N_{2}in blood at 37 degree and at a partial pressure of 0.8 atm is 5.6 x 10^{-4}mol/L?

a deep sea diver breathes compressed air with the partial pressure of N_{2}equal to 4 atm. Assume that the total volume of blood in the body is 5 L. Calculate the amount of N_{2}gas released (in liters at 37 degree and 1 atm) when the diver returns to the surface of water, where the partial pressure of N_{2}is 0.8 atm

2. The attempt at a solution

I got the answer of 0.389, but someone told me it is 0.35. Is my answer correct?
