A sample of a compound of xenon and fluorine was confined in a bulb with a pressure of 18 torr. Hydrogen

was added to the bulb until the pressure was 72 torr. Passage of an electric spark through the mixture produced Xe

and HF. After the HF was removed by reaction with solid KOH, the final pressure of xenon and unreacted hydrogen

in the bulb was 36 torr. What is the empirical formula of the xenon fluoride in the original sample? (Note: Xenon

fluorides contain only one xenon atom per molecule.)

Top Answer

As noted above, Xenon fluorides contain only one xenon atom per molecule. When hydrogen was added, the... View the full answer
