    Convert the volume of CO2 to moles, then multiply by avogadro's number. The resulting value is the number of carbon atoms.

    Oh, sorry i read the question as if they only wanted the total number of carbon atoms. Hm can we assume that the rest of the matter on the organic compound is only hydrogen? If so, then you can compare the moles of carbon and the moles of hydrogen and get the empirical formula.
