Speed of sound problem

  1. Aug 5, 2006 #1
    Question: What is the bulk modulus of oxygen at standard temperature (0°C) and pressure (1 atm) if 32.0 g of oxygen occupies 22.4 L and the speed of sound in the oxygen is 317 m/s?

    I tried approaching it as follows:
    v=sqr(B/density)
    v^2=B/density
    so, B=(.032/22.4)(317)^2

    any help is greatly appreciated...
