Converting Between Moles and Liters of a Gas at STP
At STP (Standard Temperature and Pressure:0° C and 1 atm), 1 mole of gas takes up 22.4 L of volume.
How to convert back and forth between moles and liters of a gas at STP?
Avogadro's Law states that 1 mole = 22.4 L at STP.
How to do calculations for the conversions?
The Ideal Gas Law must be used when a gas is not at STP, and it's important to make sure that you're dealing with a gas, and not a liquid or a solid.
Examples:
1. What is the volume in liters of 3.80 moles of CO2 gas at STP?
2. How many moles are in 58.6 L of nitrogen gas (N2) at STP?
3. What is the volume in liters of 10.3 moles of Oxygen (O2) gas at 25°C and 2 atm of pressure?
4. How many moles are in 29.4L of liquid ethanol (C2H2O) at STP?
5. What volume would 0.735 moles of O2 gas occupy at 1 atm of pressure and 0°C?
6. 13.0 liters of Chlorine gas (Cl2) at STP contains how many moles?
