Homework Help: Ideal gases question

  1. Feb 22, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Calculate the volume of 1 mol of steam at 100°C and a pressure of 1 atm assuming that it is an ideal gas.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Well, if I am honest I was just going to re arrange the above equation for V and plug the numbers in but that seems far too easy so I assume I am wrong.

    Can someone clarify that I am wrong and just give a gentle push in the right direction please?

    Thank you!

    Assume so.

    I did that when I said I would use PV=nRT though?

    Your approach is correct. Start plugging.
