Solution Preview

You have found the molar mass of the mixture as 13.6 g/mol.

The molar mass of He is 4 g/mol.
The molar mass of O2 is 2 * 16 = 32 g/mol

Now assume there ...

Solution Summary

It finds the mole percentage of the helium-oxygen mixture given its density. The solution is detailed and has a '5/5' rating.
