Problem

Consider this question: What is the molecular formula of a compound that contains 39% C, 45% N, and 16% H if 0.157 g of the compound occupies 125 mL with a pressure of 99.5 kPa at 22 °C?

(a) Outline the steps necessary to answer the question.

Solution

We are given the following values:

V = 125 mL
P = 99.5 kPa
T = 22 °C?

This means that we have gas and we can use the ideal gas law for this problem.
