Solution: If 6.00 mol of an ideal gas at STP were confined to a cube, what would be the length in cm of an edge of this cube?

Solution: If 6.00 mol of an ideal gas at STP were confined to a cube, what would be the length in cm of an edge of this cube?

Problem

If 6.00 mol of an ideal gas at STP were confined to a cube, what would be the length in cm of an edge of this cube?

Solution

The first thing we need to know here is that at STP, 1 mole of an ideal gas will have a volume of 22.4 L. So we can simply calculate the volume of 6 moles as: 

Now we need to convert the units from L to cm3  to have the proper units for the dimensions that we'll need later to compute for the edge of the cube.
