a flask with a volume of 267.5 mL contains a few milliliters of a volatile hydrocarbon. after vaporizing the gas at 100 degrees C, the flask is weighed and found to contain 0.728 grams of hydrocarbon vapor at 755 mmHg. a separate combustion analysis experiment revealed that the empirical formula osf the hydrocarbon was CH2. What is the molecular formula?

    Hey, My AP Chem class did a lab for determing the molar mass of a volatile liquid by vapor density. There are a few calculations that I can't seem to get: 1.) The moles of air displaced by the volatile liquid vapor (at RT) 2.) The
