Answer:

#P~=12*atm#

Explanation:

Using the Ideal Gas Equation, #P=(nRT)/V# #=# #(7.6*molxx0.0821*L*atm*K^-1*mol^-1xx314*K)/(16.0*L)# #=# #??atm#

With these problems, we are always faced with choosing the appropriated gas constant, #R#. Typically, chemists use #"litres"# and #"atmospheres"#. Absolute temperature in #"degrees Kelvin"# is common to these problems.
