I ended up with .130 but its 130

Can someone tell me what I did wrong?

This whole chapter on gases is really confusing to me and it would help if someone explained it

**Dr Russ**, Wednesday, August 11, 2010 at 3:51amPossibly the conversion of kPa? Which gas constant did you use?

As an estimate

1.24 x 10^ 4 kPa is approximately 124 atmospheres.

If 1 mole of a gas occupies 22.4 L at STP

Then the number of moles is very approximately

124 x 25/22.4 moles = 138 moles

PS - remember to include the leading zero when writing a decimal as the dot is very easy to miss.
