    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

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