To determine the density of atmospheric nitrogen. Lord Rayleigh removed the oxygen, water, and carbon dioxide from air, then filled an evacuated glass globe 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 globe (in cm3)?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The volume of globe filled with 0.20389g of nitrogen gas has to be calculated with using given density of nitrogen as 1.25718g/L.

Concept introduction:

Equation for volume from density and mass is,

Volume=MassDensity

Explanation

The mass of nitrogen gas is 0.20389g.

The density of the nitrogen is given as 1.25718g/L.

Equation for volume from density and mass is,

Volume=MassDensit
