    I am working on a Chemistry lab write up and I have to determine the pressure of the dry butane gas.

    My Data Table:
    initial mass of lighter= 21.03g
    volume of gas collected= 93.6 mL
    temperature of the water= 23.2 degrees C
    barometric pressure= 1.012 atm
    final mass of lighter= 20.820

    therefore the mass of butane collected in gas collection tube= .210g

    I tried using the ratio 1/760 = x/769 ... to no avail.
