Answer:

We solve the Ideal Gas equation......and we know that #1*atm# will support a column of mercury that is #760*mm# high.....

i.e. #1*atm-=760*mm*Hg#

Explanation:

#n=(PV)/(RT)="Mass"/"Molar mass"#

And thus #"Molar mass"=(RT)/(PV)xx"mass"#

#(0.0821*(L*atm)/(K*mol)xx358.1*Kxx0.555*g)/((753*mm*Hg)/(760*mm*Hg*atm^-1)xx0.117*L)=??*g*mol^-1#....
