The pressure in intergalactic space is $4.14\times 10^{-17}~Pa$

Work Step by Step

We can find the pressure in intergalactic space: $PV = NkT$ $P = \frac{NkT}{V}$ $P = \frac{(1)(1.38\times 10^{-23}~J/K)(3~K)}{1.0\times 10^{-6}~m^3}$ $P = 4.14\times 10^{-17}~Pa$ The pressure in intergalactic space is $4.14\times 10^{-17}~Pa$.
