Problem

What pressure will 14.0 g of CO exert in a 3.5 L container at 75 degrees Celsius?

Solution

We are asked to find the pressure of CO at the given conditions. Since mass, volume and temperature are given, we will use the ideal gas equation to calculate for pressure.

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

In the ideal gas equation, moles are needed but the mass of CO is given instead. We’ll calculate the moles of CO using the mass and its molar mass.
