Molar Volume of a Gas By Brandon Carter Lab Partner: Gabe Neal Introduction Purpose Statement: For this lab, you are looking to determine the molar volume of the Hydrogen gas that is formed after the reaction between your magnesium ribbon sample and hydrochloric acid. You must use the gas laws in order to determine this molar volume value. Background: An ideal gas is a gas that conforms to the Ideal Gas Law that uses an idealized relationship between volume, pressure, and temperature. The Ideal Gas Law conforms to the following equation: PV = nRT with P: pressure , V: volume, n = number of moles, R: gas constant (dependent on units for pressure), T: temperature. With this lab, you will use the Ideal Gas Law to calculate the molar volume of the hydrogen gas you find while conducting your experiment. However, for the ideal gas law to be applicable, it must be assumed that the gas particles have no volume and that the gas particles have no interparticle interactions. Molar Volume is defined as the volume occupied by a 1 mole sample of gasses at standard temperature and pressure (or STP). Since the reaction is being conducted over water, the gas bubbles will travel upwards, towards the top of the eudiometer. The equation for the reaction between the magnesium and hydrochloric acid you are combining is: 2HCl (aq) + Mg (s) → MgCl 2 (aq) + H 2 (g) Procedures 1. Write the date and your partner’s name at the top of your data sheet you made while dong practice question. Also put your name at the top 2. Fill your 1,000 mL beaker about ¾ full with the Tap water from the faucet. Cut a piece of the magnesium ribbon between .0600 g and .0900 g (about 40-50 mm in length) and

    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.
