Step 1

First we have to calculate the reacted pressure of CO2 gas in the given reaction:-

The initial pressure of CO2 in the reaction is given as 730 torr.

The remaining pressure of CO2 gas after the reaction is given as 150 torr.

So, the reacted pressure of CO2 gas in the given reaction is 580 torr.

Step 2

Now, we will find the no. of moles of reacted CO2 gas reacted in the given reaction: -

Step 3

The volume of container is 1.00 L.

The temperature of the reaction is 298 K.
