# Problem: What volume of air contains 12.6 g of oxygen gas at 273 K and 1.00 atm?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to find the volume of oxygen gas (O2) at the given conditions.

To do so, we shall follow these steps:

Step 1: We need to get the moles of the gas.

Step 2: Calculate the volume occupied by oxygen (O2) gas.

We will use the ideal gas equation to calculate the volume.

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

Where:

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