Students will gain further understanding of the gas laws when applied to determine the molar mass of gases and volatile liquids. Amazing how two distinct concepts can be tied together in this advanced laboratory! The molar mass of a compound is an intrinsic property of a substance that is required for all chemical reactions and analyses. How is molar mass verified and how can the molar mass of an unknown be determined?
