Answer:

#V = "29.7 L"#

Explanation:

We can use the Ideal Gas Law to calculate the volume:

#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)pV = nRTcolor(white)(a/a)|)))" "#

We can rearrange the Ideal Gas Law to get

#V = (nRT)/p#

In this problem,

#n = "1 mol"#
#R = (25.0 + 273.15) K = 298.15 K"#

#p = 626 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mmHg"))) × "1 atm"/(760color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mmHg")))) = "0.8237 atm"#

#V = (1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mol"))) × "0.082 06 L"·color(red)(cancel(color(black)("atm"·"K"^"-1"·"mol"^"-1"))) × 298.15 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("K"))))/(0.8237 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("atm")))) = "29.7 L"#
