The question is the volume of carbon dioxide was 240cm

calculate the number of molecules in this volume

(malor volume of carbon dioxide = 24litres

Do you use density to work this question and if so wher would you find it

**0**

1 mol = 24 l = 24,000 cm

x = 240 cm

x = 0.01 so 240 cm = 0.01 mol

1 mol of CO has 3 x 6.02 x 10 ^

so 0.01 mol = 18.06 x 10^

Somebody confirm.

x = 240 cm

x = 0.01 so 240 cm = 0.01 mol

1 mol of CO has 3 x 6.02 x 10 ^

so 0.01 mol = 18.06 x 10^

Somebody confirm.

dfx, have you done your calculations properly?

I get it to be 6.02 x 10

I think dfx tried to work out the number of atoms, but they are asking for molecules, so dfx you can just divide you final answer by 3 to get no. of molecules

yeah i got 6.02 x 10

^{21}molecules.

cause 24000 is = to 6.02 x 10

^{23}molecules

so

240 is = to 6.02 x 10

^{21}molecules.

Yea ma bad, sorry peeps, multiplied it by 3 for the number of atoms.
