Main Question or Discussion Point
That 1 litre of hydrogen contains the same number of molecules with 1 litre of oxygen.
http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/gas-density-d_158.htmlCan you post links of this evidence? I have my doubts you see. E.g. when you say "1 litre of hydrogen" you mean that they let a particular weight of liquid hydrogen to evaporate in a box of 1 litre which contained vacaum, and also etc?
No, it is an experimental result. You weight a box (with known volume) with vacuum, and weight it filled with hydrogen at standard pressure and temperature, and calculate the difference. No liquids involved.this density of hydrogen is derived by Avogadro΄s hypothesis?
That's why you compare it to a box with vacuum. Or, once you measured the density of air that way, you can subtract it via calculations.because as this is a low density comparing to water΄s, I am not sure whether e.g. any surrounding buoyncy because of air is taking place
That would be equivalent to the chemical reaction suggested above. You always get twice the volume of hydrogen compared to the volume of oxygen in water electrolysis, for example.THUS, something at electrolysis or counter-electrolysis can be the only proof I can think of.
Avogadro's hypothesis was tested by extensive experiments in the 19th century; it has been accepted fact since then, which is why it's now called Avogadro's Law (not hypothesis).Can you post links of this evidence?
Avogadro's Law applies to gases, not liquids.if we have weight of 70 kilograms of liquid hydrogen in 1 metre^3 I am not sure that its mass i.e. the number of its noucleons is (70/1000) (the number of nucleons in 1000 kilograms of water)
Units in the last line are incorrect. 0.0447 kmol/m^3 for O_2 and 0.0446 kmol/m^3 for H_2. You can do the same calculation for any gas (use mass density and molecular mass to determine the number density). Most gases under "typical" conditions give comparable values. There are real differences between gases, which have to do with the non-ideal behavior of the various gases (molecules have finite size, molecules have non-zero intermolecular forces).http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/gas-density-d_158.html
Note these STP densities:
[itex]O_2: 1.4290 kg/m^3 [/itex]
[itex]H_2: 0.0899 kg/m^3 [/itex]
And these molecualr weights:
[itex]O_2: 32.000 [/itex]
[itex]H_2: 2.016 [/itex]
[itex]O_2: 1.4290 kg/m^3 / 32.000 = 0.0447 kg/m^3 [/itex]
[itex]H_2: 0.0899 kg/m^3 / 2.016 = 0.0446 kg/m^3 [/itex]
Look up Gay-Lussac's law of combining volumes which is experimental.Can you post links of this evidence? I have my doubts you see. E.g. when you say "1 litre of hydrogen" you mean that they let a particular weight of liquid hydrogen to evaporate in a box of 1 litre which contained vacaum, and also etc?
No, he means a one litre vessel was filled with hydrogen gas at a particular temperature and pressure. (Actually, in his example, it was two litres of hydrogen and one litre of oxygen.)when you say "1 litre of hydrogen" you mean that they let a particular weight of liquid hydrogen to evaporate in a box of 1 litre which contained vacaum, and also etc?
One quotes atomic masses and the other a formula both assumed as known. How were they known? Originally via Avodgadro's hypothesis I think. At the start all anyone had was combining weights, so for Dalton water was HO, and the atomic mass of oxygen would have been 8.How so?
Yes, until other experiments were run with other chemical reactions that made it clear that the hypothesis that water was HO would not work and that the atomic weight of oxygen had to be 16, not 8. Avogadro's Law was not "proved" in a single blinding flash; it was gradually established over time as more and more data came in. And, as I pointed out in an earlier post, all this happened more than a century ago, and Avodagro's Law has been accepted fact ever since.At the start all anyone had was combining weights, so for Dalton water was HO, and the atomic mass of oxygen would have been 8.
That's cheating. We are not now, we are in 1810 or several decades thereafter.Right, but now we have mass spectrometry for a direct measurement.
