Problem: Suppose you are given two flasks at the same temperature, one of volume 2  L and the other of volume 3 L. The 2-L flask contains 4.8 g of gas, and the gas pressure is X atm. The 3-L flask contains 0.36 g of gas, and the gas pressure is 0.1X.Do the two gases have the same molar mass? If not, which contains the gas of higher molar mass?
