0.98mole

Explanation:

Data obtained from the question include:

V (volume) = 25L

T (temperature) = 5.0°C = 5 + 273 = 278K

P (pressure) = 89.9 kPa

Recall: 1kPa = 1000Pa

89.9 kPa = 89.9 x 1000 = 89900Pa

But: 101325Pa = 1atm

Therefore, 89900Pa = 89900/101325 = 0.89atm

R (gas constant) = 0.082atm.L/Kmol

n (number of mole) =?

Using the ideal gas equation PV = nRT, we can obtain the number of mole of Neon gas as shown below:

PV = nRT

n = PV /RT

n = (0.89x25)/(0.082x278)

n = 0.98mole

Therefore, the number of mole of Neon gas present is 0.98mole

You would be correct, boiling water does disinfect contamination.    the property of disinfecting means to kill  germs, bacteria and other pathogens or contamination  that might cause an infection or cause a person to become sickly. a couple methods of disinfecting are using soap, other cleaning supplies or by simply "boiling" the contaminate.  the reason why boiling water disinfects certain attributes is because some cells cannot survive the heat and pressure.
