    pV=nRT. You know pV and you also know nRT. You can rearrange this to give p and then substitute in standard temperature and pressure. I don't know what standard pressure is in mmHg, but standard temperature is normally 298K

    Hello wenhao: What is the temperature of the gas ? I will assume that temperature is 50.0 C.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ( PSTP ) ( VSTP ) / (TSTP ) = ( P1 ) ( V1 ) / ( T1 )

    VSTP = ( V1 ) ( PSTP / P1 ) ( TSTP / T1 )

    VSTP = ( 50.0 L ) ( 742 mm Hg / 760 mm Hg ) ( 273.2 / 323.2 )

    VSTP = 41.0 L <----------------------
