Oooh this is right up my ally. I just finished college Chemistry.


n = moles

Molar Mass = Mass of gas/N

I'm fairly certain, anyway.

If you could give me the exact problem I'm pretty sure I could do it. My best unit in Chem was the gas laws.

Is this by chance Webassign?

CH3CH2CH2CH3 is butane, I forget if that helps, it's been 3 years since I took chemistry. I was under the impression that you could find the atomic mass of each atom in the substance, add them up then multiply it by Avogadro's number, 6.02214×10^23, which is how many molecules per mol there are. I'm nearly certain now that's wrong or inaccurate to anything aside from 20* Celsius at 1atm pressure because you'll have to account for the mass gain due to excess energy.

I found this while googling: http://www.chem.uiuc.edu/chem103/mol...troduction.htm
