10. A 3.54-g sample of lead(II) nitrate (molar mass = 331 g/mol) is heated in an
evacuated cylinder with a volume of 1.60 L. The salt decomposes when heated,
according to the following equation:
2 Pb(NO3)2 (s)  2 PbO (s) + 4 NO2 (g) + O2 (g)
Assuming complete decomposition, what is the pressure (in atm) in the cylinder
after decomposition and cooling to a temperature of 300. K? Assume the PbO(s)
takes up negligible volume.
The reaction produces 2 gases so the pressure in the container
is the total pressure ⇒ Ptotal = ntotalRT

11. 2.5 mol of O2 gas and 3.0 mol of solid carbon, C (s) are put into a
3.50-liter container at 23°C. If the carbon and oxygen react
completely to form CO (g), what will be the final pressure (in atm)
in the container at 23°C?
2 C (s) + O2 (g)  2 CO (g)
Determine limiting reagent
C ⇒ 3 mol C/2 = 1.5
O2 ⇒ 2.5 mol/1 = 2.5 ⇒ C is the LR
Since C is the LR ⇒ in addition to the CO formed there will be excess
O2 in the container so the pressure will be the total pressure ⇒
Ptotal = ntotalRT/V

Speed of B
According to the average speed
equation ⇒ uavg = (8RT/π M)1/2
we can see the relationship between

since uavg B > uavg A ⇒ TB>TA
Plot A ⇒ 300K
Plot B ⇒ 1000K
15. These plots represent the speed distribution for 1.0 L of He at

NO (30.01 g/mol) > CH4 (16.042 g/mol)
Therefore the relative rates of effusion are

20. Consider two 5 L flasks filled with different gases. Flask A has carbon

a. Which flask has the molecules with the greatest average kinetic
energy? According to KEavg = 3RT ⇒ we see the relationship ⇒ as T
2
↑ KEavg↑ ⇒ since both flasks are at the same T they will have the
same KEavg
b. Which flask has the greatest collisions per second? According to

we see three relationships ⇒ as T↑ Z↑ or as molar mass↑ Z↓ or as N/V (or
P)↑ Z↑ ⇒ so since both flasks have the same T and molar mass but
the PB > PA ⇒ ZB > ZA
21. Under what conditions will a real gas behave like an ideal gas?
An “ideal” gas is one that in reality adheres to the ideal gas law ⇒ meaning
experimental values agree with calculated values using PV = nRT
Gases are more likely to behave “idealy” when the pressure is low and/or the
temperature is high
Deviations from the ideal gas law is due to the attractive forces between the
gas particles and the volume of the gas particles relative to the volume of
the container
22. Which of the following gases will have the lowest molar volume at STP?
a. He
b. CH2Cl2
The molar volume of an “ideal” gas is 22.4 L/mol
c. CO2
as the attractive forces of the gas particles ↑
the molar volume ↓ – later (in ch 16)
we will learn the specifics of attractive forces
however for now we can use the relationship that as molar
mass ↑ attractive forces ↑ (an exception is water – although water
is rather on the light side it has quite strong attractive
forces called H-Bonds which we’ll see further in ch 16)
Therefore since CH2Cl2 has the highest molar mass it has the
strongest attractive forces and the lowest molar volume
