Sick of math, science and english? The doctor is in!

PV=nRT Pressure, Volume n=the number of moles of the gas (calculate using its weight and molar mass--watch grams and kg)

R=Univ Gas Constant T=Temperature

So: P=nRT/V

Watch the units! liters,atm,moles The units for "R" are tricky but we have to use the same units for the values in the rest of the problem as are used for "R". Temp of 50F needs converting to C.

If all the units are proper just plug in the numbers
