- Gay Lussac’s Law of Combining Volumes. – Statement and explanation
- Simple calculations based on the molar volume and Gay Lussac’s law.
Propane burns in air according to the following equation:
C3H8 + 5O2 → 3CO2 + 4H2O
What volume of propane is consumed on using 1000 cm3 of air, considering only 20% of air contains oxygen?
Water can split into hydrogen and oxygen under suitable conditions. The equations representing the change is: 2H2O(I) → 2H2 (g) + O2(g)
If a given experiment results in 2500cm3 of hydrogen being produced, what volume of oxygen is liberated at the same time under the same conditions of temperature and pressure?
When gases react their volumes bear a simple ratio to each other, under the same conditions of temperature and pressure. Who proposed this gas law?
What volume of oxygen would be required for complete combustion of 100L of ethane according to the following equation?
2C2H6 + 7O2 → 4CO2 + 6H2O
The reaction 4N2O + CH4 → CO2 + 2H2O + 4N2 takes place in the gaseous state. If the volumes of all the gases are measured at the same temperature, and pressure, calculate the volume of dinitrogen oxide (N2O), required to give 150cm3 of steam.
