#### Answer:

The volume at STP is 5900 L.

#### Explanation:

You don’t give the temperature or pressure, so I shall assume the gas is at STP.

We can use the Ideal Gas Law to calculate the volume at STP.

The Ideal Gas Law is:

#color(blue)(|bar(ul(PV = nRT)|)# ,

where

#P# is the pressure#V# is the volume#n# is the number of moles#R# is the gas constant#T# is the temperature

We can rearrange the Ideal Gas Law to get

#V = (nRT)/P#

STP is 1 bar and 0 °C.
