Unformatted text preview: Using the Ideal Gas Law The balloon used by Jacques Charles in his historic flight in 1783 was filled with about 2626 g of H2. If the temperature of the gas was 23°C and its pressure was 750 mm Hg, what was the volume of the balloon?

Helium-filled balloons are used to carry scientific instruments high into the atmosphere. Suppose a balloon is launched when the temperature is 22.5 °C and the barometric pressure is 754 mm Hg. If the balloon’ volume s is 4.19 x 103 L (and no helium escapes), what will the volume be at a height of 20 miles, where the pressure is 76.0 mm Hg and the temperature is -33.0°C?

You are trying to determine, by experiment, the empirical formula of a gaseous compound to replace chlorofluorocarbons in air conditioners. Your results give an empirical formula of CHF2. Now you need the molar mass of the compound to find the molecular formula. You conduct another experiment and find that a 0.100 g sample of the compound exerts a pressure of 75.00 mm Hg in a 256 mL container at 22.3°C. What is the molar mass of the compound? What is its molecular formula?

Ideal gas equation relates the amount of a gas to volume, temperature and pressure. Law of combining volumes can be developed using the gas law. EXAMPLE 2 H2O2(liq) → 2 H2O(g) + O2(g)
