Can anyone help me out with this chemistry question?

Compound A is an oxide of chlorine that is liquid at room temperature and pressure and has a boiling point of 83 degrees.

When 0.4485g of A is heated to 100 degrees C at 1.00x10^5 Pa, 76.0cm3 of gas is produced.

Determine the molecular formula of compound A.

I've got the number of moles of gas produced from pv=nrt, but I'm not sure how to proceed. :/

Rearrange pv=nrt to find n=pv/rt. From that you can work out the Mr of the compound.

Really sorry would you mind explaining how you work out the molecular formula of the compound after finding the moles from pv=nrt.

You could use n=m/Mr

you have moles and mass, use mass/moles = Mr then deduce how many Chlorines and Oxygens fit into it (theres probably an easier to do it than that)
