the largest a party balloon can get before bursting is 8.23L at 25 degrees celsius and 1.00 atm. supposing you fill the balloon only with oxygen gas, how many grams of oxygen can be added to the balloon before it pops? assume you have not added any gas to the baloon at all (so essentially it is flat)

a.) 10.8 g O2

b.) 0.337 g O2

c.) 4.01 g O2

d.) 128 g O2

e.) 2.97 g O2

after some calculations i assume the answer is D, but my friend keeps saying it is B

  1. I think both of you are incorrect. Use PV = nRT and solve for n, then grams = n x molar mass O2.
