at sea level the average lung capacity for humans is about 4.o liters. at 37 degrees celcius (body temperature) how many grams of oxygen could your lungs hold?

  • chemistry -

    PV = nRT
    P = 1 atm
    V = 4.0 L
    n = unknown
    R = 0.08206
    T = 273 + 37 = ??
    Solve for n, then n = grams/molar mass. Solve for grams.
    Note the correct spelling of celsius.
