Problem: A mixture of 0.200 g of H2, 1.00 g of N2, and 0.820 g of Ar is stored in a closed container at STP. Find the volume of the container, assuming that the gases exhibit ideal behavior.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Jahangeri's class at NVCC.

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that standard temperature and pressure (STP) is defined as 1 atm and 0 ˚C


Recall that the ideal gas law is:


PV=nRT

where 

P = pressure (in atm)           R = gas constant (0.08206 atm • L/mol • K)

V = volume (in L)                 T = temperature (in K)

n = moles of gas
