    PV = nRT

    n = number of moles

    R = gas constant = 0.08206 (atm∙L)/(mol∙K)

    T = temperature in kelvins

    P = absolute pressure in atm

    V = volume in liters

    "pressure of O2 in a 15.0 L flask is 0.581 atm at 52 °C"

    n = PV/RT = (0.581)(15) / (0.08206)(273.15+52) = 0.327 moles

    O₂ has a molecular weight of 2•16 g/mol

    0.327 moles x 32 g/mol = 10.45 g (c)
