We are asked to determine the mass of CH4 at STP.
Recall that the standard temperature is at 273 K (0°C) and the standard pressure is at 1 atm. With this information, we shall use the ideal gas equation to determine the number of moles of CH4 and consequently the mass.
At STP, what is the mass 13.0 L of methane, CH 4?
a. 0.580 g
b. 16.0 g
c. 9.31 g
d. 27.6 g
e. 22.4 g
