We’re being asked to determine the mass of the 195 mL hydrogen sample collected over water at 25 °C and 753 torr.

At STP:         T = 0°C

P = 1 atm

We’re going to calculate the volume of the gas using the ideal gas equation.

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{T}}}$

P = pressure, atm
V = volume, L
n = moles, mol
R = gas constant = 0.08206 (L·atm)/(mol·K)
T = temperature, K
