Problem 3SAQWhat is the pressure of 1.78 g of nitrogen gas confined to a volume of 0.118 L at 25 °Ca) 13.2 atmb) 369 atmc) 1.10 atm Ad) 26.3 atm Step by step solutionStep 1 of 3The pressure of the ideal gas can be calculated by the ideal gas equation. .................................(1)Rearrange the equation (1) as follows. .........................................(2) P = pressure of the gas V = volume of the gas R = gas constant n = number of moles of gas T = absolute temperature.From the given,The volume of the nitrogen gas = 0.118LThe temperature of the gas in kelvins = 25 + 273 =298KMass of nitrogen gas = 1.78g
