    12.9 g / 32 g/mole = 0.403 mol O2 gas

    0.403 mol / 0.21 = 1.92 moles of air gases

    1.92 moles x 22.4 liters / mol = 43 liters of air

    12.9 g of oxygen gas = 0.403125 mole of oxygen gas. PV = nRT. Volume of O2 gas is 9.03 L. 9.03 divided by 0.21 = 43 L of air. The final answer should be rounded to two significant figures because the mole fraction is only two sig figs.
