Answer:

The density of Ne is #"0.901 g/L"# at #"25"^@"C"#.

Explanation:

#"density"="mass"/"volume"#

The density of a substance will vary with temperature because temperature affects volume. In this case, the density of neon is calculated at ambient temperature of #25^@"C"#. #(298-273=25)#

#"1.00 mole of neon has a mass of 20.1797 g"#. This is its atomic weight on the periodic table, but in grams.

The volume is given as #"22.4 L"#.

To calculate its density, divide its mass by its volume.

#"density"_"Ne"=(20.1797"g")/(22.4"L")="0.0901 g/L"#
