Chemistry 2090 Homework #12 Please hand in answers to the following questions found in Petrucci et al at the beginning of class on Friday, December 5. Chapter 6: Questions 70, 74 Chapter 12: Questions 22, 38, 40, 48 In addition, please answer the following questions: 1. A spherical bulb with a volume 0.500 is evacuated to an unmeasurably small residual gas pressure, and then closed. One hour later the pressure in the bulb is found to be 1 . 00 × 10 7 atmospheres, because there is a tiny hole generating a leak into the bulb. Assume that the surroundings are at 1.00 atm, T = 300K, and the average molar mass of atmospheric gases is 28.8 g/mole. Calculate the radius of the hole in the vessel wall, assuming it to be circular. 2. Steam at high pressures and temperatures is used to generate electrical power in utility plants. A large utility boiler has a volume of 2500 m 3 , and contains 140 metric tons (1 metric ton = 1000 kg) of steam at a temperature of 540 C. Use the Van der Waals equation to estimate the pressure of the steam under these conditions, in atmospheres;

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
