(a) An ideal gas occupies a volume of 1.8 cm3 at 20°C and atmospheric pressure. Determine the number of molecules of gas in the container. 

 molecules 

(b) If the pressure of the 1.8-cm3 volume is reduced to 2.4 ✕ 10−11 Pa (an extremely good vacuum) while the temperature remains constant, how many moles of gas remain in the container?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

DATA:

Volume of gas = 1.8cm3 = 1.8*10-3 dm3

Pressure of gas = 1atm (you didn’t mention)

Temperature= 20C0 = 293K

Number of molecules = ?

SOLUTION:

PV=nRT

n= PV/RT

n= (1) (1.8*10-3)/(0.0821) (293)

n= 7.4827*10-5 mol

Number of molecules = moles * Avogadro’s number

Number of molecules = 7.4827*10-5 * 6.02*1023

Number of molecules = 4.5045*1019 molecules

DATA:

Volume of gas = 1.8cm3 = 1.8*10-6 m3

Pressure of gas = 2.4*10-11 Pa

Temperature= 20C0 = 293K

Number of moles = ?

SOLUTION:

PV=nRT

n= PV/RT

n= (2.4*10-11) (1.8*10-6)/(8.314) (293)

n= 1.7733*10-20 mol
