Wondering where I went wrong in this problem...Ammonium nitrate, a common fertilizer, is used as an explosive in fireworks and by terrorists. It was the material used in the tragic explosion...

at the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995. How many liters of gas at 307°C and 1.00 atm are formed by the explosive decomposition of 86.6 kg of ammonium nitrate to nitrogen, oxygen, and water vapor?

I must've rounded it wrong or too much. I got 20000 L gas.
