(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A gas obeys the ideal-gas equation of state PV = NkT , where N = nN_{A}is the number of molecules in the volume V at pressure P and temperature T and n is the number of g moles of the gas.

Calculate the volume (in L) occupied by 1 g mole of the gas at atmospheric pressure and a temperature of 356.2K

1 atm = 1.013 × 10^{5}N/m2

Avogadro’s constant is 6.02214 × 10^{23}

k = 1.38065 × 10^{-23}Nm/K.

2. Relevant equations

P V = N k T

= n NA * k T

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried working it, but the answer I come up with is wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction?

(1.013 x 10^{5}Nm/K)( V ) = (1 x 10^{-3}kg)(1.38065x10^{-23}Nm/K)(6.02214 x10^{23})(356.2 K)

V = 2.92 x10^{-5}m^{3}

= 2.92 x10^{-2}L
