  1. PV = nRT
    then n = g/molar mass. Post your work if you get stuck.

  2. So far I have: (0.385g)(8.31dm3 times kPa)(200K)(1000cm3)/(7.40 kPa)(mol times K)(200 cm3)(1Dm3) which =639870 g/1480 mol which =432.345 and that is not even close to one of the answers. I don't know where I am going wrong.

  3. I think your units are messed up.
    PV = nRT
    It's easier to use atmospheres than kPa. R is 0.08205 L*atm/mol*K when atm is used for pressure, P. V must be in liters. I don't know what grams is doing in PV = nRT
    P = 750 torr/760 = ?? atm
    V = 200 mL = 0.200 L
    n = solve for this
    R = 0.08205
    T in K = 273 + C = 273-73 = 200 K
    So
    (750/760)atm x 0.200 L = n x 0.08205 L*atm/mol*K x 200 K.
    Solve for n, THEN,
    n = # mols = grams/molar mass.
    You have mols and grams, solve for molar mass. I hope this helps.
