IDEAL GAS LAW QUESTION

Calculating the molar mass of a gas.

===============================

We can work with the ideal gas law equation, PV = nRT.

760 torr = 1 atm
17.0 C = 290 K

How much volume of the gas do ...

Solution Summary

Solution provides explanations on how to determine molecular mass, and thus determine what type of gas it is.
