## Homework Statement

The ambient temperature in outer space is about 3.0K. Most of the matter in space is hydrogen gas at a density of about one atom per 3.0m^3. What is the pressure of this dilute gas if it is in thermal equilibrium at the ambient temperature.

## Homework Equations

PV = nRT

## The Attempt at a Solution

I started with saying that PV = nRT and substituting volume for mass/density since I was given density. I cannot seem to get the correct answer playing with the numbers for mass and density of the hydrogen. The correct answer is 1.4x10-23Pa.
