Aim: How to convert from moles to volume and vice versa
Avogardo’s Hypothesis Avogadro's hypothesis says that the same volume of gas contains the same number of particles. It does not matter what gas you have, they all contain the same number of particles provided that they are at the same temperature and pressure.
STP Volume of gas and temperature are usually measured at STP. Standard temperature and pressure (STP) means temperature of 0 o C and a pressure of 101.3 kPa, or 1 atmosphere (atm). At STP, 1 mole or 6.02 x 10 23 representative particles of any gas occupies a volume of 22.4 L.
How many moles of argon atoms are present in 11.2 L of argon gas at STP? 11.2 x 1mol / 22.4 L = 0.500 moles
Calculating Molar Mass From Density Molar Mass density Molar volume
Calculating molar mass of gas at STP The desnity of a gaseous compound containing carbon ad oxygen is found to be 1.964 g/L at STP. What is the molar mass of this compound. 1. List known and unknown. KnownUnkown Density = 1.964 g/Lmolar mass ? 1 mol = 22.4 L
