Problem: A bottle of highly volatile perfume with molecular formula C5H8O4N2 spills inside a large infinitely expandable bubble and the bubble expands to its maximum size consistent with the fact that the perfume liquid/vapor equilibrium still exists i.e. the perfume “gas” molecules cause the bubble to expand with no work involved. How many molecules of perfume remain in the liquid phase?a. not enough information is given to sayb. 22.4 litersc. none should be left in the liquid phased. one molee. about one or two molecules
