Problem: An ideal gas mixture contains 35% helium, 20% methane, and 45% nitrogen (by volume) at 2.00 atm and 90°C. Calculate the density of the gas mixture in kg/ m3.

FREE Expert Solution

We will use the ideal gas equation to find the density of the gas.

PV=nRT

PVV=nRTVP=nRTV

n=mass mmolar mass (M)
