Asked Nov 30, 2019
A sample of a gas has a mass of 0.311f. At 55C, its volume is 0.225L & its pressure is 886 mmHg. Find its molar mass. 

Expert Answer

Step 1

The number of moles for a given chemical species refers to the ratio of mass of the species to that of its molar mass. The formula is shown below:

Mass Number of moles=. Molar mass

Step 2

The ideal gas equation is known as the general gas equation and is a equation of state for a given hypothetical gas. The equation is given by:

PV=nRT P is the pressure of the gas V is the volume of the gas R is the universal gas constant T is the temperature of the gas n is the number of moles of the given gas

Step 3

In the given problem, the temperature is given to be 55oC =328.15 K.

The pressure of the gas is given to be 886 mmHg=1.16579 atm.

Volume occupied by the gas is given to be 0.225 L...
