By gas law:
PV= nRT, where P is pressure of the gas at the temperature T and R is a gas constant and n is the substance of gas in moles.
Put values in the equation For STP and The given temprature and pressure situations.
(1)/(2) eleminates R and reduces To:
760*22.4/(700*20) = (70/x)(273.15)/290.15
= 54.17 g
It is 54 grams, correct to the nearest number. It is based on the formula, known as the gas law, which is PV= nRT. The figures can be directly put inside and solved. The rest is up to you to decide on how do you want to proceed.
