Answer to Question #68923 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for DEEPENDRA SINGH
We obtain the expression for the density of gas
Therefore the molar mass of gas is
M=ρRT/P=(2.5×8.3×273)/(1.01×〖10〗^5 )=56 g/mol.
M(H)=1 g/mol,M(C)=12 g/mol.
So the number of hydrogen atoms is twice of carbon.
Because the molar mass of gas is 56, we obtain equation for the number of carbon atoms x
2×1×x+12×x=56 ⇒ x=4.
So the molecular formula of the gas is
