What is the volume, in liters, of 0.500 mol of #C_3H_8# gas at STP?
Because we are at standard temperature and pressure and are given only one set of conditions, we can to use the ideal gas law equation:
I should mention that the pressure does not always have units of atm, it depends on the units of pressure given in the gas constant.
List your known and unknown variables.
- Number of moles
At STP, the temperature is 273K and the pressure is 1 atm.
Let's rearrange the equation to solve for V:
