Question #86410

A 1.79-g sample of an unknown gas has a volume of 530 mL and a pressure of 923 mm Hg at 36.6 °C. Calculate the molar mass of this compound.
________ g/mol

Expert's answer

A 1.79 g sample of an unknown gas has a volume of 530 mL and a pressure of 923 mm Hg at 36.6 °C. Calculate the molar mass of this compound.

m(gas) = 1.79 g

V(gas) = 530 ml = 0.00053 m^{3}

p(gas) = 923 mm Hg = 123056.5 Pa

T = 36.6°C = 309.6 K

R = 8.31 J⋅mol^{−1}⋅K^{−1}

M(gas) -?

**Solution:**

M(gas) = (1.79 g*8.31 J⋅mol^{−1}⋅K^{−1}*309.6 K) / (123056.5 Pa*0.00053 m^{3}) = 70.61 g/mol

**Answer:**

The molar mass of this compound is 70.61 g/mol.
