# Problem: A piece of solid carbon dioxide with a mass of 5.60 g is placed in a 10.0-L vessel that already contains air at 710 torr and 24 oC.After the carbon dioxide has totally vaporized, what is the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the container at 24 oC?

$\overline{){\mathbf{PV}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{nRT}}}$

P = pressure, atm
V = volume, L
n = moles, mol
R = gas constant = 0.08206 (L·atm)/(mol·K)
T = temperature, K
