1. I'm not sure if I did this question right it's a question about the ideal gas equation the question is:
A gas cylinder of volume 5.00 x 10^-3 m3 contains 348g of argon gas. Calculate the pressure of the argon gas in the cylinder at room temperature of 20 degrees.

So I did (8.72*8.31*293)/(5*10^-3) and I got 4246344 pascals is this correct?
2. Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

Hi I'm stuck on a question about the ideal gas equation the question is:
A gas cylinder of volume 5.00 x 10^-3 m3 contains 348g of argon gas. Calculate the pressure of the argon gas in the cylinder at room temperature of 20 degrees.

So I did (8.72*8.31*293)/(5*10^-3) and I got 4246344 pascals is this correct?
The calculation looks right to me. Why would you be stuck?
