Hexane is a hydrocarbon (a molecule containing only carbon and hydrogen) with a molecular weight of 86.18 g/mol,
a density of 0.660 g/mL, and a boiling point of 69C .

Pentanol is an alcohol (a hydrocarbon with a "OH" group attached to one of its carbons) with a molecular weight of
88.15 g/mol, a density of 0.814 g/mL, and a boiling point of 137C .

Calculate the volumes if 5.00 moles of each chemical is present.

  1. Do you assume the volumes are additive? They are not necessarily additive but if you assume they are, then,
    1 mol hexane has mass of 86.18 g and volume = mass/density = 86.18/0.660 = ??. That x 5 (for 5 mols) = volume of 5 mols hexane.
    Same kind of calculation for pentanol, then add them together.
