    Homework help - gas laws and stoichiometry!

    A candle is burnt inside a sealed container of oxygen gas with a volume of 1500 cm3 at 25oC. Once the reaction is complete and the container has cooled to 25.0oC, what will the pressure be inside the container? Assume the candle has no volume, that all the oxygen is consumed, that candle wax has...

    Green Chemistry (Gas Stoichiometry)

    For my chemistry lab, I reacted Mg powder with HCl to create H2 gas. I measured the volume of H2 gas created by salt water displacement by reading off an inverted test tube. I measured 14.0 mL and calculated the percent yield (used PV=nRT to find theoretical volume and divided it by the actual-...

    Gas Stoichiometry Question

    Here's the question. A 3.25 gram sample of solid calcium carbide (caC2) reacts with 1.72 mL of water to produce acetylene gas (C2H2) and aqueous calcium hydroxide. If the acetylene was collected at 17.0 degrees C and 740.0 mm Hg, how many milliliters of acetylene were produced? I started off by...

    AP Chem/Pre-AP Chem review: Can someone help me with this sol. stoich. question?

    ** We haven't gotten to that part where we take into account that not everything will react completely and we don't subtract the precipitate from the total mL. My class will start taking those things into account after we finish the pre-ap chem review.** Problem: An unknown volume, X of 0.731M...

    Can you please check these? (Stoichiometry problems)

    So i'm generally good with Molarity problems but on a few they threw mg/ml into the mix and its throwing me off. I think i did these right but could someone check them? The first problem is, you weigh out exactly 0.250g of CaCo3 (form. weight= 100.09g/mol) and disolve it in exaclty 250 ml of...
