    You've worked out the formula of A and B; you know that A -> B + C + n H2O. So, take the elements in B away from the formula of A to get what will be in the gas and water; then take away hydrogen and oxygen at a 2:1 ratio to account for the water; what's left will be your gas.

    Isn't it a calculation as it mentions RTP?

    You can't calculate the gas from the density. You're working out what the products of the degradation reaction are; the density is just possibly useful info about the gas if you have a couple of possibilities.

    I see what you mean but the MS gives a mark for correctly calculating the mass :
    1.17 x 24 = 28 I don't get this calculation though
