PV = nRT

The Attempt at a Solution


I found the solution for part a which I think 924 kg. I found this answer by multiplying 770 m^3 by 1.2 kg (density of air at 20 Celsius: 1.2kg/m^3).
But I do not know how to find the answer to part b. I read the whole chapter but still did not know how. Please help me.

Using the formula
V1T1 = V2/T2
find V2.
Then find the change in volume. Multiply it with density to get the mass air entering the room.
