Problem: The allowable concentration level of vinyl chloride, C2H3Cl, in the atmosphere in a chemical plant is 2.2 × 10−6 g/L .How many moles of vinyl chloride in each liter does this represent?

FREE Expert Solution

We can convert the given mass per liter of vinyl chloride to moles per liter using the molar mass of vinyl chloride, C2H3Cl. The molar mass of C2H3Cl is (2 × 12.01 g/mol C) + (3 × 1.01 g/mol H) + 35.45 g/mol Cl = 62.50 g/mol.
