    PV=nRT

    n is the number of moles. There are 30 grams per mole of CO2. 1.7 kg of CO2 is 1700 g. 1700/30 = 56.67 moles of CO2.

    R is a constant .082

    T = 25C= 298K

    P = 1

    Solve for V

    V=nRT/P = (56.67 x .082 x 298)/1 = 1385 liters

    1.70 kg / 1.98 kg/m^3

    = 1.70/1.98 kg * m^3 / kg ( to divide by a fraction invert it and multiply )

    = 0.859 m^3

    The units guide you to the correct formula!
