In this experiment, you will determine the molar volume of a gas by conducting a chemical reaction that produces a gas, as shown in the reaction equation below.
You will react a known mass of solid magnesium with an excess of hydrochloric acid, in a sealed vessel, and use the pressure change to calculate molar volume at STP.
In this experiment, you will
- Measure the gas production of a chemical reaction by a pressure change.
- Determine the molar volume of the gas produced in the reaction.
- Calculate the molar volume of a gas at STP.
