    This is the question, hope it makes sense:

    phosphorus forms two hydrides, PH3 and P2H4. 0.152g of a hydride of phosphorus has a volume of 100ml. identify the gas if it has a molar volume of 23.0 litres mol-1

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

    I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

    Work out the molar masses of the two hydrides. Then you know that 0.152 g occupies 0.1 litres so therefore 23 litres (1 mol) weighs 230*0.152 g. One of the two hydrides will have this molar mass
