This sounds right to me! Next step to find kJ per gram, would be to convert your J to kJ, and divide by the amount of grams given. This is odd, however, since normally these problems want kJ per mole, not gram. I hope this helps!

Keep in mind: n=moles, so divide your grams by molar mass to get moles. Then, as said above, plug everything in. V=nRT/P
