Question

1.A) A student used the method MM=g*R*T/P*V for determine the molar masss of an unknown volatile liquid. The barometric pressure in the lab was 746 mmHg, and the temperature of the boiling water was 98.5 degress C. The mass of the flask was 68.471 g, and the weight of the flask plus the condensed vapor was 687.959 g. The volume of the flask was 135.7 mL. What is the molar mass of the compound?

B) What would happen to the calculated MM in the results if the flask were heated too long? Explain.

C) Another student mistakenly measured a mass for the vapor that was larger than it should have been. Would the calculated molar mass be larger or smaller than it should be? Explain.

Answer #1

**A.** MM=(g×R×T)/(P×V)

Ideal gas equation: PV=nRT

Given data

P=746mm of Hg=1atm

T=98.5^{0}C=98.5+273.15=371.65 K

g= Mass of the gas= 687.959-68.471= 619.488g

R= Gas constant=0.08206 L.atm/mol .K

V=135.7×10^{-3}=0.1357L

MM=(g×R×T)/(P×V)

= (619.488×0.08206×371.65)/(1×0.1357)

**=139225 g/mol**

**B.** Prolonged heating of the flask may not
change the molar mass value as vaporization and condensation go
simultaneously.

**C**. If the mass of the vapor was high(mistakenly
measured), the calculated molar mass be larger than the actual
value as molar mass is directly proportional to mass.

**MM** **** **mass**

A student observes that a 126 mL dry flask with a foil
cup weighs 50.162 g. The student then adds 5 mL of an unknown
volatile liquid and heats flask in a boiling water bath at 99.2 C
Until all liquid disappears. The flask, foil, and unknown after
heating that is dry and cool weigh 50.610 g. The barometric
pressure in the laboratory is 743.3 mmHg; the laboratory
temperature averages 22.3 C; the vapor pressure of the unknown
liquid is...

1. You are given a quantity of a volatile liquid substance and
asked to determine its molecular weight. To do that, you place a
sample of the liquid in a 200.0-mL flask and submerge the flask in
a boiling water to vaporize all of the liquid. The vapor fills the
flask and the excess escapes,. Now you cool the flask so that all
the vapor in it condenses, and you weigh the flask and liquid.
After you subtract the mass...

A student was assigned the task of determining the identity of
an unknown liquid. The student weighed a clean, dry 250-mL
Erlenmeyer flask. The student completely filled the flask with
water. He then proceeded to weigh the flask containing the
water.
Mass of 250-mL Erlenmeyer flask: 78.639 g
Mass of 250-mL Erlenmeyer flask and water: 327.039 g
Assuming the density of water is 1.00 g/mL at ambient
temperature, what is the exact volume (in mL) of the 250-mL
Erlenmeyer flask?...

What would happen to
the results in this experiment if the student read the barometric
pressure as 713 mm Hg rather than its true value of 743 mm Hg?
a) The moles of the
vapor would be too small, thus the calculated molar mass would be
too large.
b) The moles of the
vapor would be too small, thus the calculated molar mass would be
too small.
c) The moles of the
vapor would be too large, thus the calculated...

Explain how each of the following errors Part B would affect the
calculation of the molar mass of the unknown. (which would have
been Cyclohexane ,C6H12, molar mass=84.2, boiling point=80.7)
(4): 0.3703g
(6): Temp of vapor in flask 102C 375.15K
(7): Barometric Pressure- 30.35in * 2.54cm/1in * 10mm/1cm=
770.89 --> 1.01 atm
(8): Volume of Erlenmeyer flask- 147 mL 0.147 L
M= (step4)(0.0821L atm/mole)(6) / (step 7)(step 8) = 76.8 g/mol
<---that should have been 84.2 if we would have...
