What volume is occupied by a #5.0*g# mass of ammonia that is placed in a piston and allowed to expand against a pressure of #740*mm*Hg# at a temperature of #50# #""^@C#?
So we conceive that in this experiment, a mass of condensed ammonia is enclosed in a piston, which is allowed to expand against a pressure of
We use the old Ideal Gas equation.....
Do the units in the expression cancel out to give an answer in litres? If they do not, then we have made a mistake.
