  1. Nitrogen gas (N2) has a mass of 28.0 grams per mole, and one mole occupies 22.4 liters at STP.

    You have a mass of 18,500 g. Divide that by 28 g/mol for the number of moles. Then multiply that by 22.4 liter/mol for the number of liters.

    If you add 15 kg to the 18.5 kg you already have, keeping T the same, you multiply the number of moles and the pressure by a factor
    33.5/18.5
