How much vinegar needs to be mixed with a 5.7% Chlorine solution to create a Cl2 concentration of 400 ppm? ?
My chemistry professor has is teaching us about the dangers of mixing cleaning products and has tasked us with figuring out how much vinegar needs to react with a 5.7% chlorine solution to produce enough Cl2 gas to prove fatal. I did some research and found that fatality can ensure after 30 minutes of exposure to Cl2 gas at a concentration of 400 ppm.
Do I need to consider the size of the room? My bathroom is about 7m^3

Yes, you need to consider the room size. It takes more Cl2 to reach 400 ppm in a big room than a stadium.
Use the ideal gas equation to estimate how many moles of air are in your room. 1 atm and 20C would be reasonable estimates to use.
moles of Cl2 = 400 * 10^-6 * moles of air
mass of Cl2 = moles * molar mass Cl2
