    Xenon ....

    PV = nRT ........... ideal gas equation

    n = PV / RT ........ solve for n (moles)

    n = 1.00 torr x 3.1x10^-6L / 62.36 Ltorr/molK / 283K

    n = 1.76x10^-10 mol

    1.76x10^10 mol Xe x (6.022x10^23 atoms Xe / 1 mol Xe) = 1.06x10^14 atoms Xe ............. round to two significant digits: 1.1x10^14 atoms Xe
