    I believe 1 is not quite right. Probably just a typo but 83.350-82.657 = ??

    2. ok.
    3. 30.09 inches Hg x 25.4 mm/inch = 764.286 mm Hg which is ok. However, the question asks for atmospheres, not mm Hg so divide by 760.
    4. ok
    5. density. I am unsure exactly what you are doing.
    P*molar mass = density*RT so you can calculate density BUT that doesn't use any of your data other than the molar mass. (It doesn't use the 0.693 g) so I don't think that is the approach to take.
    However, you can calculate moles from
    PV = nRT. From moles = grams/molar mass you can calculate experimental molar mass (which isn't 86.2), then
    density = molar mass/22.4 g/mol which will give you the experimental density of the vapor.

    A cubic piece of metal measures 6.50 on each edge. If the metal is nickel, whose density is 8.90 , what is the mass of the cube?
