The mass of a gas molecule can be computed from its specific heat at constant volume [tex]c_v[/tex] (note this is NOT [tex]C_v[/tex])(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Take [tex]c_v=0.075\frac{cal}{g*C}[/tex] for argon and calculate (a) the mass of an argon atom and (b) the molar mass of argon.

I just finshed the chapter on Kinetic Theory of gases, but for some reason I am completely jammed on this one.

Can I get a hint to get me going?
