Problem

Liquid nitrogen has a density of 0.808 g/mL and boils at 77 K. Researchers often purchase liquid nitrogen in insulated 177 L tanks. The liquid vaporizes quickly to gaseous nitrogen (which has a density of 1.15 g/L at room temperature and atmospheric pressure) when the liquid is removed from the tank. Suppose that all 177 L of liquid nitrogen in a tank accidentally vaporized in a lab that measured 12.00 m m 12.00 m 3.50 m .

What maximum fraction of the air in the room could be displaced by the gaseous nitrogen?
