The ideal gas law is PV = nRT. You have n (2.80mol), V (18L), and T (24°C). R is the universal gas constant (which equals 0.0821 L* atm/mol * K).

Convert Celsius to Kelvin:

24°C + 273K = 297K

insert the numbers into the equation:

P(18L) = (2.80mol)(0.0821 L atm/mol * K)(297K)

isolate P:

P = (2.80mol)(0.0821 L atm/mol * K)(297K)/(18L)

P = 0.178 atm
