## Homework Statement

What is the pressure inside a $50.0$ L container holding $105.0$ kg of argon gas at $20^\circ$ C?

## Homework Equations

Ideal Gas Law: PV=nRT

## The Attempt at a Solution

From the ideal gas law, I get

[itex]

P=\frac{nRT}{V}=\frac{\frac{105.0\times 10^3g}{36g/mol}\times 0.08214\frac{L\cdot atm}{mol\cdot K}\times 293^\circ K}{50.0 L}=25258atm

[/itex]

which seems much too large. Am I doing something wrong?
