Unformatted text preview: We derive the formula PV = nRT for P. Remember that we're asked for the pressure. Then plug in the values into the equation. P = nRT / V = (0.15*0.0821*299)*10^3/50 = 74 atm pressure in atmospheres 1atm=760 torr The pressure in torr is 56240 torr 1atm=14.6959psi The pressure in psi is 1087.5 psi...
