Answer:

#V_(Ne)# #=# #22.41# #L#

Explanation:

#"We use the ideal gas law,"#

#color(orange)(PV=nRT)#

#"We know the conditions for STP are the following,"#

#P=101.325# #kPa#

#V=?#

#n = 1.0# #mol#

#R=8.314#

#T=273.15# #K#

Plug in your values.

#color(orange)(V_(Ne)=(nRT)/(P)#

#=((1.0mol)(8.314)(273.15))/(101.325)#

#=((1.0mol)(8.314)(273.15))/(101.325)#

#=(2270.9691)/(101.325)#

#V_(Ne)# #=# #22.41# #L#

#"This is true because the volume of an ideal gas is 22.41 L/mol at STP."#
