HOMEWORK 1.3 1.1b (a) Could 25 g of argon gas in a vessel of volume 1.5 dm 3 exert a pressure of 2.0 bar at 30°C if it behaved as a perfect gas? If not, what pressure would it exert? (b) What pressure would it exert if it behaved as a van der Waals gas? 1.5b What pressure difference must be generated across the length of a 15 cm vertical drinking straw in order to drink a water-like liquid of density 1.0 g cm −3 ? 1.7b The following data have been obtained for oxygen gas at 273.15 K. Calculate the best value of the gas constant R from them and the best value of the molar mass of O 2 . 1.10b A gas mixture consists of 320 mg of methane, 175 mg of argon, and 225 mg of neon. The partial pressure of neon at 300 K is 8.87 kPa. Calculate (a) the volume and (b) the total pressure of the mixture. 1.15b
