2-13. A standard cubic foot , scf, of gas represents one cubic foot of gas at one atmosphere and 298.15 K. This means that a standard cubic foot is a convenience unit for moles. This is easy to see in terms of an ideal gas for which the equation of state is given by pV n RT = The number of moles in one standard cubic foot of an ideal gas can be calculated as one atmosphere = one cubic foot = 298.15 K = p np V R T V T = and for a non-ideal gas one must use an appropriate equation of state. In this problem you are asked to determine the number of moles that is equivalent to one scf of an ideal gas.
