How much volume would 63.9 g of carbon monoxide take up?
The volume of
Temperature affects volume. Since no temperature was given, I'm going to use STP.
The density of carbon dioxide can be used to answer this question.
We have been given the mass of
We now have density and mass.
The Density Formula
To determine volume, rearrange the formula to solve for volume, then substitute the known values and solve.
51.1 liters at STP
The molar mass of Carbon Monoxide
1 x C = 1 x 12 = 12
1 x O = 1 x 16 = 16
Total = 28 grams/ mole
The number of moles is found by dividing the mass by the grams/mole
At STP ( Standard Temperature Pressure) The molar volume is 22.4 liters/mole
to find the volume multiple the number of moles time the molar volume.
# 2.28 xx 22.4 = 51.1 liters.
