# trong>Exercise 13.12 Ammonia is commonly used as a fertilizer to provide a source of nitrogen for plants. A sample of NH 3 ( g ) occupies a volume of :math> 5 .00  L at 25 ° C and 15 .0  atm . What volume will this sample occupy at STP?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The volume of sample of ammonia gas at STP should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The volume of ammonia gas at STP can be determined using ideal gas law. Ideal gas law isa hypothetical law and is mathematically expressed as:

PV = nRT

Where,

P is the pressure of gas

V is the volume of the gas

T is the absolute temperature of the gas

R is the gas constant and

n is the number of moles of the gas molecules

The ideal gas law can also be represented as:

P1V1T1=P2V2T2

The ratio (PVT) of a gas is always constant.

Explanation

Given:

Volume (V1 ) = 5.00 L

Pressure (P1 ) = 15 atm

Temperature (T1 ) = 25° C = (273+25) K = 298 K

At STP,

P2 = 1 atm

T2 = 273 K

V2 = ? (need to be determined)

Using the ideal gas equation

P1V1T1=P2V2T2

V
