Problem: What is the density of methane, CH4, in a vessel where the pressure is 910 torr and the temperature is 255 K?

FREE Expert Solution

Calculate for the density of methane gas:


Given:

P = 910 torr (convert to atm: 1 atm = 760 torr)
= 255 K

R = universal gas constant = 0.08206 (Latm)/(molK)
M = molar mass of CH4
