##### Need help with gas sample preparation prob

Need help with this problem, please show all steps of calculations. Appreciate!
In order to prepare a 24.0-liter volume (under ambient conditions) of chlorobenzene gas standard (C₆H5Cl; liquid density= 1.11 g/cm³) at 50 ppmv using a pre-evacuated 6.00-liter canister at 756 torr and 18 °C, (a) what volume of the 98.6 % pure chlorobenzene liquid must be injected into the canister and (b) what is the final pressure the canister containing the chlorobenzene must be pressurized to with ultrahigh purity nitrogen gas? The canister is equipped with a differential pressure gauge measuring the pressure in “psig” unit

I was able to find the final pressure using (P1*V1)/ T1 = (P2*P2)/T2 equation. However, I am not sure how to find how many grams of chlorobenzene. I guess I should use density and 50 ppmv, but have not figured how to use it. I think with the known grams of chlorobenzene, I can find the number of moles and the volumes needed. Am I on the right track?
