Answer:

Based on the data given, the molar mass of the gas is 165.5 g/mol while the molecular weight of the gas is 165.5 amu

How can molar mass of a gas be obtained from density, temperature and pressure?

The molar mass of a gas can be obtained from density, temperature and pressure using the formula below:

  • molar mass = density × molar gas constant × temperature/pressure

Molar gas constant, R = R = 0.082 L.atm/mol/K.

Temperature = 150 °C = 423 K

Pressure = 785 torr = 1.033 atm

density = 4.93 g/L

molar mass of gas = 4.93 × 0.082 × 423/1.033

molar mass of gas = 165.5 g/mol

Then, molecular weight of the gas = 165.5 amu

Therefore, the molar mass of the gas is 165.5 g/mol while the molecular weight of the gas is 165.5 amu
