Problem

In one of his most critical studies on the nature of combustion, Lavoisier heated mercury(II) oxide and isolatede elemental mercury and oxygen gas. If 40.0 g of mercury(II) oxide is heated in a 502-mL vessel and 20.0% (by mass) decomposes, what is the pressure (in atm) of the oxygen that forms at 25.0°C? (Assume that the gas occupies the entire volume)
