What is the density of gaseous ethane, #C_2H_6# at STP?

1 Answer

Answer:

#1.3 g//L# 1.3 grams per liter.

Explanation:

At STP the molar concentration is one mole per molar volume or Avogadro's volume of approximately 22.4 liters.

The molar mass is the sum of the atoms

# 2 xx C = 2 xx 12 = 24 u#

# 6 xx H = 6 xx 1 = 6 u#

# 24 + 6 = 30 u#

So the density is # (30g)/(22.4 L)#

or #1.3 g//L#
