Question

<ol><li>Octane, C8H18, boils at 125°C as compared to water, which boils at 100°C. Explain why each

has the boiling point given why they are different.</li><li>You have an empty flask attached through a piece of tubing to a water tank. The water tank is at a lower level than the flask, and thus there is no flow of water between the tank and the flask. You heat the flask over a hot flame and then place a cork on the top of the flask. What happens when you turn off the flame and allow the system to cool?  </li><li>Explain the conditions under which an ideal gas behaves ideally and the conditions under which an ideal gas does not behave ideally and becomes a real gas. What corrections should be made to the ideal gas law and assumptions of the kinetic molecular theory to correct for this real behavior? </li></ol>
