    _____PV = n RT

    moles of gas are the same in both cases and R is a constant, so

    (PV/T)stp = [(Ptotal-pH2O)V/T]exp

    Vstp = [(Ptotal - pH2O)/Pstp] * (Tstp/Texp) = ??

    Plug and SOLVE

    Basic mathematics is a prerequisite to chemistry – I just try to help you with the methodology of solving the problem.
