Nitroglycerin is a shock-sensitive liquid that
detonates by the reaction
6N2(g) + 10H2O(g) + 12CO2(g) + O2(g)
Calculate the total volume of product gases
at 210 kPa and 296C from the detonation of
2.7 lb (1224.7 g) of nitroglycerin.
Answer in units of L
Convert grams nitroglycerin to mols. mols = grams/molar mass
Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert mols nitroglycerin to mols of each product. Find total mols and convert to volume in liters.
