Answer:

Well, the mass is easy as you have specified it.....

Explanation:

If the dinitrogen is at room temperature, #298*K#, you could also specify the pressure by means of the ideal gas equation:

#P=(nRT)/V=((7*g)/(28.02*g*mol^-1)xx0.0821*(L*atm)/(K*mol)*xx298*K)/(0.50*L)#

#~=12*atm#

Note that #1*L-=1*dm^3#, and I can use these units interchangeably.1
