Problem: The effect of chlorofluorocarbons (such as CCl2F2) on the depletion of the ozone layer is well known. The use of substitutes, such as CH3CH2F(g), for the chlorofluorocarbons, has largely corrected the problem. Calculate the volume occupied by 10.0 g of each of these compounds at STP:(a) CCl2F2(g)

PV=nRT


Step 1: Calculate moles

molar mass CCl2F2 = 120.91 g/mol


10.0 g CCl2F2×1 mol CCl2F2120.91 g CCl2F2 = 0.08271 mol CCl2F2


Step 2: Calculate volume

At STP:

P = 1 atm                            

T = 0 ˚C + 273 = 273 K       


Solving for the volume:
