Homework Answers

Answer #1

PV = NRT Ideal Gas Equation

V = n∙R∙T/P..........(1)

density ρ = m/V .......(2)

Substitutin 1, we get

ρ = m∙P/(n∙R∙T)............(3)

and molar mass M = m/n..........(4)

Substitutin 4 in 3, we get

ρ = M∙p / (R∙T).............(5)

For Krypton,

M = 83.80 g∙mol⁻¹ = 8.38×10⁻² kg∙mol⁻¹
Standard conditions :
P = 101,325 Pa & T = 273.15 K
Hence, ρ = 8.38×10⁻² kg∙mol⁻¹ ∙ 101325 Pa / (8.314472 Pa∙m³∙K⁻¹∙mol⁻¹ ∙ 273.15 K) = 3.74 kg∙mol⁻³ (Ans)

The density of an ideal gas at same conditions is proportional to its molar mass. *as can be seen from eqn 5
ρ ~ M

ρ(CH₄) / ρ(Kr) = M(CH₄)/M(Kr)............(6)

Rearranging the above eqn 6, we get

ρ(CH₄) = ρ(Kr) ∙ (M(CH₄)/M(Kr))

The molar mass of methane is: M(CH₄) = 16.04 g∙mol⁻¹

Therefore, ρ(CH₄) = 3.74 kg∙mol⁻³ ∙ (16.04 g∙mol⁻¹ / 83.8 g∙mol⁻¹) = 0.716 kg∙mol⁻³(Ans)
