Three volatile compounds X,Y, and Z each contain elements Q. The precent by weight of element Q in each compound was determined. Some of the data obtained are given below
Percent by weight Molecular
Compound of Element Q Weight
X 64.8% ?
Y 73.0% 104.
Z 59.3% 64.0
(a) the vapor density of compound X at 27 degress C and 750.mm Hg was determined to be 3.53 grams per litre. Calculate the molecular weight of compound X.
(b) Determine the mass of the element Q contained in 1.00 mole of each of the three compounds.
(c) Calculate the most probable value of the atomic weight of element Q
(d) Compound Z contains carbon, hydrogen, and element Q. When 1.00 gram of compound Z is oxidized and all of the carbon and hydrogen are converted to oxidized, 1.37 grams of CO2 and 0.281 gram of water are produced. determine the most prbable molecular formula of compound Z
Now I know how to do a by using gRT/PV but how do i get the rate?
