1. Complete the table below using the ideal gas law to solve the problems. Remember: all units
must be consistent with the ideal gas constant you use!

a. 3.5 atm 5.00 L mol 303 K
b. 65.0 psi L 75.0 g O2 23.8oC
c. 740.0 mm Hg 25.0 mL mol 22.5oC
d. atm 2500. L 1000. mol 40.0oC
e. 99.3 kPa 5.00 L 0.450 mol K
