A spherical balloon of 21cm diameter is to be filled up with H2 (HYDROGEN) at STP from a cylinder containing gas at 20atm and 300K . If the cylinder can hold 2.82L of water . Calculate the no. of balloons that can be filled up in cylinder?

D (Sphere) = 2.1*10-1 m

We know that the volume of the sphere is:

4 3 V r

 

According to ideal gas law:

P1 =20atm, P2 = 1atm (STP: P=1atm, T=273K) So, P1=20P2

T1=300K, T2=273K

V1=2.82L=2.82*10-3m3
