what volume is occupied by 2.0 g of He at 25 degrees C and a pressure of 775 mm?
[tex] Pv = nRT [/tex]
P = pressure
v = volume
n = number of moles
R = universal gas constant
T = temperature.
Calculate how many moles are in 2.0 grams of helium, divide both sides of the equation by P.
EDIT: Remember to have your units correct, IE Kelvin, kilograms etc
what is the constant? or is there one? if so, how do i determine what it is?
R is the universal gas constant. It is always the same. In si units, it is: 8.314472 Joules per mol kelvin.
ok, im not sure about this, but is the answer 1.59?
What did you use as your numbers?
775=0.5(constant)(298), then divided by 775
That equation is: [tex] p = nRT [/tex]
You need volume on the left hand side to solve for it.
Also, you wrote in the question description that pressure = 775mm, I am going to assume that this is mmHg.
You are going to need to convert this to pascals.
