Homework Help: Chemistry (PLS HELP ASAP)

Posted by coug on Monday, January 11, 2010 at 10:23am.

What is the molecular weight of a gas if a 15.0g sample has a pressure of 836 mm Hg at 25.0 degrees C in a 2.00 L flask?

a)167
b)1.35
c)176
d)11.1
e)none of the above


Please explain... I need to understand how to do this. Thanks.

I know that I have to use PV=nRT, then solve for n grams/molar mass
And, I know that:
P=1.1 atm
V=2.00 L
n=?
R= I think .0821
and
T= ?

I have no idea how to change 15.0g to moles, since I do not know what the element is to look at the atomic mass--I know that one mole is avagadro's number, but I'm still really not sure what to do here.

Please help...
