Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors sound an alarm when peak levels of carbon monoxide reach 100 parts per million (ppm).

Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors sound an alarm when peak
levels of carbon monoxide reach 100 parts per million (ppm).
This level roughly corresponds to a composition of air that
contains 400,000 mg carbon monoxide per cubic meter of air
(400,000 mg/m3). Assuming the dimensions of a room are
18 ft 3 12 ft 3 8 ft, estimate the mass of carbon monoxide in
the room that would register 100 ppm on a carbon monoxide
