Problem

The molar mass of a volatile substance was determined by the Dumas-bulb method. (In the Dumas-bulb technique for determining the molar mass of an unknown liquid, you vaporize the sample of a liquid that boils below 100oC in a boiling-water bath and determine the mass of vapor required to fill the bulb (see drawing A diagram shows a flask of boiling water on a hot surface. A Dumas bulb filled with a vaporized unknown substance is immersed in the boiling water.). The unknown vapor had a mass of 0.847 g, the volume of the bulb was 355 cm3, pressure was 753 torr, and temperature was 100 oC.

Calculate the molar mass of the unknown vapor.
