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.

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

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

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