Problem: Calculate the density of xenon gas at a pressure of 747 mmHg and a temperature of 41 oC.

FREE Expert Solution

Use the ideal gas equation to find the density of the xenon gas.

PV=nRT

PVV=nRTVP=nRTV

n=mass mmolar mass (M)

P=mRTMV

mV=gL=density (d)

PM=dRTMMPMRT=dRTRTd=PMRT


P=747 mmHg×1 atm760 mmHg
