  1. assume one mole (16grams)

    density=mass/volume
    so volume= 22.4(273+20)/273*1atm/5atm

    volume=4.81 liters

    denstiy=16/4.81 g/liter

  3. From Ideal Gas Law PV=nRT=(mass/fwt)RT => (mass/Vol)=Density=P(fwt)/RT
    P = 5 Atm
    fwt = 16 g/mol
    R = 0.08206 L-Atm/mol-K
    T = (273+20)K = 293K
    Density = [(5)(16)/(0.08206)(293)]g/L
    = 3.33 g/L
