# What volume will 2.3 kg of nitrogen gas occupy at STP?

Jun 14, 2014

According to Avogadro's Law a gas will always have a volume of $22.4 \frac{L}{m} o l$ at Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP).

To determine the volume of 2.3 kg of nitrogen gas we would need to convert the mass of nitrogen to moles and then covert moles to liters at STP.

We begin be converting the mass to moles.

2.3 kg of nitrogen is 2300 g.

$2300 g x \frac{1 m o l}{14.1 g} = 163.1 m o l {N}_{2}$

Now we can convert moles to liters.

$163.1 m o l {N}_{2} x \frac{22.4 L}{1 m o l} = 3 , 653.4 L {N}_{2}$
