Calculate the total volume of gas in a vessel when 56.0g of nitrogen is mixed 10g of hydrogen to form ammonia at 600kPa and 450 degrees Celsius.
R = 8.31
(Hint - you need to deduce the limiting factor)

Okay so I’ve worked it out and I got the answer 0.033
But in my book I’ve copied down the answer as 0.0367

Which one is right ? Can anyone please do the question and give me the answer they get ? Thanks if you have any questions please ask
Thank you

Please, when asking such a question, include your working out, rather than just your final answer. That way, we can find out where you have gone wrong and point you in the right direction. I can't work out how you got your answer. I think you got 3.67 mol of NH3, but I can't see why you'd think that.

You have posted a number of questions on gases over the last few days and people have just been doing your work for you. As a teacher of umptytwo years, I can tell you that people showing you how to do questions is a terrible way of learning.

For the record, I got 0.033379 m3. Notice that I gave a unit.

Sorry.. yea I posted a few questions with the working out but it took a while so I didn’t for this one.. sorry
This is what I did :
Nitrogen - 56/28 = 2moles
2/1 = still 2 moles
Hydrogen - 10/2 =5 moles
5/3 = 1.67 moles
So hydrogen is the limiting factor
(5/3)*2 = 3.33 moles of NH3

V=nRT/P
V= (3.33*8.31*723) / 600,000
V = 0.0333451215
V = 0.033 m3

Thanks for your answer

I have no idea why you did the bits I've highlighted in bold. Perhaps I'm still half-asleep.

Did you reverse engineer your method to fit the answer you were expecting? Or was there some flukey method in your madness?

It was to find the limiting reagent

OK, one line at a time:

Hydrogen - 10/5 =2 moles

Where did the '5' come from?

Sorry I meant 10/2=5 moles
Then I did 5/3 = 1.67
1.67 is less than nitrogens 2/1 = 2 so hydrogen is the limiting reagent

And then I used 5 because it’s the limiting reagent to find moles of NH3
(5/3)*2 = 3.33 moles of NH3
