Problem: What volume is occupied by 0.105 mol of helium gas at a pressure of 0.96 atm and a temperature of 306 K ?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to find the volume of helium gas (He) at the given conditions. Since moles, temperature, and pressure are given, we will use the ideal gas equation to calculate for the volume.


PV = nRT

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