Hexane is a hydrocarbon (a molecule containing only carbon and hydrogen) with a molecular weight of 86.18 g/mol,
a density of 0.660 g/mL, and a boiling point of 69C.
Pentanol is an alcohol (a hydrocarbon with a "OH" group attached to one of its carbons) with a molecular weight of
88.15 g/mol, a density of 0.814 g/mL, and a boiling point of 137C.
Calculate the volumes if 2.50 moles of each chemical is present.
2.5 moles of each implies
215.5 g / .660 g/mL = 326.4 mL
88.15 g/mole * 2.5moles=220.4g
220.4 g / .814 g/mL = 270.7mL
