# What is the volume of 2.00 moles of chlorine (Cl_2) at STP, to the nearest tenth of a liter?

Jan 28, 2016

$44.8$ litres

#### Explanation:

At STP, the molar volume of all gases is $22.4 {\mathrm{dm}}^{3} / m o l$.

Hence $2 m o l$ of $C {l}_{2}$ at STP occupies a volume of $44.8 {\mathrm{dm}}^{3}$.

To convert this to litres, we use conversion factors :

$1 L = 1000 c {m}^{3} = 1 {\mathrm{dm}}^{3}$

Hence $44.8 {\mathrm{dm}}^{3} = 44.8 L$
