1 mol occupies 22.4 L at STP. Solve for n, then n = grams/molar mass. You know molar mass and n, solve for grams.

OR you may use PV = nRT to solve for n.

PV = nRT

n = PV/RT @ STP T= 0+273k; P = 1atm R = 0.821 L- atm/mol-K

n = 1atm(56.2L)/0.821 L- atm/mol-K(273k)

n = 2.50 mole

2.50 moles of Ar =39.984g of Ar/1mole of Ar
