Name: Ideal Gas Law Lab (Molar Mass of Butane Lab) Purpose : The purpose of this lab is to experimentally determine the molar mass of a sample of butane (C 4 H 10 ) gas. Using the ideal gas law and the data collected, the experimental molar mass of the butane (C 4 H 10 ) can be determined and compared to the calculated molar mass of butane (C 4 H 10 ) which is 58.1 g/mol. Materials: - Bucket (or large beaker) - Butane Lighter - 100 mL Graduated Cylinder (Glass) - Electronic Balance - Funnel - Thermometer - Barometer (pressure of the atmosphere) Procedure: 1) Fill a bucket (or large beaker) 2/3 with water. (Let it sit so water temp. = room temp.) 2) Put the lighter under the water for about 10 seconds, then take out of water, dry it off and take the mass of the lighter. 3) Fill the graduated cylinder with water (make sure there are no air bubbles in the cylinder) 4) Invert (place upside down) the graduated cylinder into bucket of water. 5) Take the funnel and place the narrow side into the top of the graduated cylinder.
