🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Velazquez's class at MDC.

We are asked to find the **density of xenon gas** at a pressure of 742 mmHg and a temperature of 45°C.

We will use the **ideal gas equation** to find the density of the oxygen gas.

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{T}}}$

$\frac{\mathbf{P}\overline{)\mathbf{V}}}{\overline{)\mathbf{V}}}\mathbf{=}\frac{\mathbf{n}\mathbf{R}\mathbf{T}}{\mathbf{V}}$

$\mathit{P}\mathbf{=}\frac{{\mathbf{n}}\mathbf{RT}}{\mathbf{V}}$

${\mathit{n}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{m}\mathbf{a}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{}\left(\mathbf{m}\right)}{\mathbf{m}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{l}\mathbf{a}\mathbf{r}\mathbf{}\mathbf{m}\mathbf{a}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{M}\mathbf{\right)}}$

Calculate the density of xenon gas at a pressure of 742 mmHg and a temperature of 45°C. Express the density to three significant figures and include the appropriate units.
