For this problem, we’re being asked to determine the volume of hexane found in 5.33 x 10 22 molecules of hexane.
The flow for this problem will be like this:
molecules of hexane (Avogadro’s number) → Moles of hexane (molar mass of hexane) → mass of hexane (Density)→ volume hexane
Determine the volume of hexane that contains 5.33 x 10 22 molecules of hexane. The density of hexane is 0.6548 g/mL and its molar mass is 86.17 g/mol.
a. 13.5 mL
b. 12.4 mL
c. 11.6 mL
d. 8.59 mL
e. 7.40 mL
