We’re being asked to calculate for the density of nitrogen gas at 0°C and 2 atm.

To calculate for density, we’re going to use the **ideal gas equation**.

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{T}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{\mathbf{P}\overline{)\mathbf{V}}}{\overline{)\mathbf{V}}}\mathbf{=}\frac{\mathbf{n}\mathbf{R}\mathbf{T}}{\mathbf{V}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathit{P}\mathbf{=}\frac{{\mathbf{n}}\mathbf{R}\mathbf{T}}{\mathbf{V}}$

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