Problem: Suppose two 200.0-L tanks are to be filled separately with the gases helium and hydrogen. What mass of each gas is needed to produce a pressure of 2.70 atm in its respective tank at 248°C?

FREE Expert Solution

We can use the ideal gas law to calculate the moles of gas using the given pressure, volume and temperature. We're given:
P = 2.70 atm                                      V = 200.0 L
T = 248 ˚C + 273.15 = 521.15 K         n = ?
