Suppose you have Avogadro\'s number of mini marshmallows and use them to cover the state of Wyoming which has a land area of 9.710 × 104 mi2. Each mini marshmallow has a diameter of 0.635 cm and a height of 2.54 cm. Assuming the marshmallows are packed together so there is no space between them, to what height above the surface, in kilometers, will the mini marshmallows extend?

  • The noble gas argon was discovered by Sir Walter Ramsay and John William Strutt in England in 1895.  Through this discovery, they made highly accurate measurements of gas densities.  Their experimentally determined densities are:        Oxygen                1.42952 g/L Nitrogen              1.25718 g/L Air                          1.29327 g/L 1) To determine the density of atmospheric nitrogen, Strutt removed the oxygen, water, carbon dioxide, and argon from air and then filled an evacuated glass tube with the remaining gas.   He determined that a mass of 0.20389 g of nitrogen has a density of 1.25718 g/L under standard conditions of temperature and pressure.  What is the volume of the glass tube in cm3?

    One of the best-selling light, or low-calorie, beers is 4.2% alcohol by volume and a 12-oz serving contains 110 calories, to estimate the percentage of calories that comes from alcohol, consider the following questions. Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction of ethanol with oxygen to make carbon dioxide and water. If 4.2% of total volume of ethanol and the density of ethanol is 0.789 g/mL, what mass of ethanol does a 12-oz serving of light beer contains?
  • You are asked to calibrate a 25.00 mL volumetric pipet. You determine the temperature of your distilled water is exactly 30 degrees celsius. You carefully determined the mass of a clean, dry beaker and found it was 60.1703 g. You pulled the water up to the mark and transferred this to the beaker and found that the new mass was 85.2263 g. What is the actualy volume of the pipet? I tried answering the question above by doing 85.2263 - 60.1703 = 25.056 g  I then used 25.056 and multipled it with .995646 (which is the density of water at 30 degrees celsius I believe)  The answer I got is 24.947  I am not sure if I am just doing the problem wrong or if it is simply my signifcant figures that are off? Please help :))
    Mercury is an environmental pollutant because it can be converted by certain bacteria into the very poisonous substance dimethyl mercury, (CH3)2Hg. This compound ends up in the food chain and accumulates in the tissues of aquatic organisms, particularly fish, which renders them unsafe to eat. It is estimated that in the United States, 241 tons of mercury are released into the atmosphere each year. If only 1.9 percent of this mercury is eventually changed to (CH3)2Hg, how many pounds of this compound are formed annually?
