Question
0.37 (a) Calculate the number of molecules in a deep breath of
air whose volume is 2.25 L at body temperature, 37 °C, and
a pressure of 735 torr. (b) The adult blue whale has a lung ca-
pacity of 5.0 x 103 L. Calculate the mass of air (assume an
average molar mass of 28.98 g/mol) contained in an adult
blue whale's lungs at 0.0 °C and 1.00 atm, assuming the air
behaves ideally.
