if 3.0 moles of nitrogen gas are collected in a 35.0 liter container at 20 C what would be the the pressure exerted on the container in atmospheres

chemistry 
Jennifer,
PV = nRT
where P = pressure, V = volume, R is a constant = 8.314 J/mol*K, and T is temperature in degrees Kelvin, n is number of moles
degrees K = 273 + degrees C
1 liter = 1000 cm^3 = 1000 cm^3* (1 m / 100 cm)^3 = 1000 * (1/1000000) = 1/1000
= 0.001 m^3
35 L = 0.0035 m^3
P*0.0035 = 3*8.314*293
Solve for P

DrBob222,
I believe 35.0L is 0.035 m^3; i.e.,
0.001 x 35.0L = 0.0350 m^3
