Easy explanation: Here, p = 700 mm; v = 100 ml; t =250 K

Volume of nitrogen at STP = p * v * 273/ 760 * t

= 700 * 100 * 273/ 760 * 250

= 100.57 ml

22,400 ml of nitrogen at STP weighs = 28 g

Then, 100.57 ml of nitrogen weighs = 28 * 100.57/22400

= 0.125 g

Therefore, percentage of nitrogen = 0.125 * 100/0.350

= 35.71%

So, percentage of nitrogen in the organic compound is 35.71%.
