Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Step 1
Find the volume in Cubic Feet.

V = l*w*h
V = 8 * 12 * 22
V = 2112 cu feet.

Step 2
Convert this to cubic meters
Conversion Factor 1 m^3 = 35.315 ft^3
1 m^3 = 35.315 ft^3
x = 2112 ft^3

x = 2112/35.315
x = 59.80 m^3

Step 3
Find the Carbon Monoxide.

1 m^3 = 43 micrograms Carbon Monoxide.
59.80 m^3 = x

x = 2571.60 micrograms.

Step 4
Convert Micrograms into grams.

1 gram = 1*10^6 micrograms.
x gram = 2571.60 micrograms.

x = 2.5716 * 10^-3 grams.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
