Well, one mole of ideal gas occupies 22.4 L.

#### Explanation:

So, we have

And thus if we assume carbon monoxide behaves ideally, its volume (if enclosed in a piston expanding against atmospheric pressure) would be approx.

8.00 Liter

#### Explanation:

It can be further explained as :-

idle gas equation is

Here ,

P = 1 atm

V = To be find out

R = 0.08206 Universal Gas constant

T = 273 k

m = mass of gas [g], given 10 g

M = mass of 1 mole of gas [g] that is 28.01 of CO

By putting all values -

or

or

V = 8.00

Hence Answer is 8.00 Liter Volume
