As we learnt in 

Kinetic Theory of Gases -

Molecules of gases are very small and their actual volume is negligible in comparision to the empty space between them.

-

 

Required % = \frac{4}{3}\times \frac{\pi \times \left ( 2\times 10^{-8} \right )^{3}\times 6\times 10^{23}}{22400}\times 100= 0.09 \%
