## Homework Statement

Considering a container of 3*10

^{-2}m

^{3}filled with an unknown gas such that the pression is 15MPA (or 1.5*10

^{7}Pa) and the temperature is 25°C.

Determine the volume occupied by one atom of the gas and determine the average distance between its particles.

## Homework Equations

PV = nRT

P = Pressure

V = Volume

n = Number of Moles

R = Constant 8.31

T = Temperature

## The Attempt at a Solution

Considering that

[tex]n=\frac{PV}{RT}[/tex]

[tex]n=\frac{1.5*10^7*3.2*10^(-2)}{8.31*25}[/tex]

Which returns 2310moles, which is about 1.5*10

^{27}atoms.

However, from here on I'm lost... What should I do? :(
