stochiometric/Ideal gas law question
« on: November 27, 2019, 07:30:55 PM »
My first post here. Had a question regarding a stochiometric/ideal gas law problem. I attached a photo of the processes I went through to complete the problem, and was wondering if anyone would be able to see if I did the problem correctly.
I have another question about a similar problem, but for now I will start with this one question.
Thank you,

No,  Check how many liter Oxygen correspond to the given hydrogen.
Convert this to mole and then use molar mass to get the mass.

You are given volume of the gas, not number of moles, so you can't plug that number into [itex]V=\frac{nRT}{P}[/itex] (besides, this is formula for finding volume, so the answer can't be in grams).

You are right in starting with the ideal gas law, you just need to solve it for n and plug the given volume in. Once you know number of moles of hydrogen, just follow the stoichiometry.
