Unformatted text preview: 3:2, and the empirical formula is C3O2. Q9 n/V = P/RT = 1 atm/(0.0822)(300) = 0.0405 moles/L. Since there are 2.76 g/L, then 2.76 g = 0.0405 mole. Therefore, 1 mole weighs 68.1 g. The empirical formula from Q8 would be 68, so the molecular formula is the same as the empirical formula, C3O2. Q10 Boyle's law applies to a given sample of gas at a constant temperature. When the tires are being filled, though, the quantity of gas in the tire (n) is changing. So Boyle's law doesn't apply....
