when calculating stoichiometric relationships in gas reactions using the combined gas law why is it important to convert the volumes and pressure to STP?

  • Chemistry -

    Primarily because you know the number of moles a gas occupies at STP and gases react by moles. You can take a shortcut and use only volumes if you have the volumes at STP since they are directly proportional to the number of moles.
