Product Details

General, Organic and Biological Chemistry Avogadro, Boyle, Charles and Dalton—these scientists and their gas laws are well known. They defined the relationships among four macroscopic gas properties: pressure, volume, temperature and the number of moles of gas. How much gas must be generated to fill a hot air balloon or an airbag? The amount of gas needed to fill any container can be calculated if we know the molar volume of the gas. Answering this general question requires knowledge of all of the gas laws! In this experiment students determine the volume of one mole of hydrogen gas at standard temperature and pressure (STP). The volume of hydrogen collected by water displacement will be measured and corrected for differences in temperature and pressure in order to calculate the molar volume of hydrogen at STP. Complete for 24 students working in pairs.
