23General Chemistry: Chapter 6 Chemistry 140 Fall 2008Example 6-4, Molar Mass with the Ideal Gas EquationExample 5-6Use the Ideal Gas Equation:PV =mMRTM =mPVRTPV = nRTP = 740.3/760 * kPaM =(P kPa)( dm3)( g)( J mol-1 K-1)(297.2 K)This gas must be ketene. There really are no other possibilities.[Pa · m3] = [kPa · dm3] = [J]M = g · mol-1General Chemistry: Chapter 6
