I don't understand how to find the volume in this problem..

A flask containing 63.2 mL of neon gas was collected over water at 21C and 788 mm Hg. What is this volume of gas at STP? (WVP at 21C = 18.6 mm Hg)

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Hint: what do you know about the partial pressures of the gases? What is contributing to the 788 mmHg? – jonsca Dec 9 '12 at 10:15
If you edit the question to reflect your initial efforts, you can flag it to be reopened. As of now, you have just copied your homework problem in as a question. More ideal would be if you could pinpoint the areas that are troubling you and ask a more conceptual question. – jonsca Dec 10 '12 at 4:39
This question serves as a bad example for the homework policy. – Martin - マーチン Feb 23 at 8:44
