Unformatted text preview: Tempe, Arizona were made to walk at different speeds on a treadmill while their air consumption was measured. In one hour, the average alien walking at 0.20 km/hr consumed 10 Liters of Air (21 mole% O 2 content) per kg of alien weight at 1 atm pressure and 24 C. How many molecules of O 2 was consumed in 1 hour by this 55.6 kg alien? Answer: 10 L air x 0.21 O 2 = 2.1 L O 2 , now you need to convert to molecules of O 2 by first converting to moles. Use PV=nRT n=PV/RT; [(1 atm)(2.1LO2)]/[(0.08206 Latm/mol K)(24 +273 K)]=0.086165 moles O 2 PER kg 0.086165 moles X 6.022 x 10 23 molecules/mol = 5.18886 x10 22 molecules O 2 PER kg Now multiply by 55.6kg = 2.9 x 10 24 molecules O 2 that the green alien consumed in 1 hour...
