Lesson 11 Example 11-1 The vapour pressure of benzene (C 6 H 6 ) at 25 o C is 94.7 mmHg. After 1.00 g of benzene is injected into a 10 L container held at 25 o C, what is the partial pressure of benzene in the bulb and how many grams remain as liquid? Data: T = 25 o C = 298 K P vap = 94.7 mmHg = 0.1246 atm m = 1.0 g V = 10 L M = 78 g/mol There are 2 options: 1) All benzene vapourizes; 2) Part of benzene vapourizes 1

Lesson 11 Let’s initially assume option 2) is the right one: V gas = V = 10 L (even if no benzene vapourizes, the volume of 1.0 g of benzene is negligible compared with 10 L) 2 C 6 H 6 (g) C 6 H 6 (g) C 6 H 6 (l) P by ideal gas P vap (25 o C)
