Where are we going with this? The activity on this page provides a practical application that allows the use the kinetic molecular theory with the combined and ideal gas laws to explain changes in volume, pressure, moles and temperature of a gas and to use lab data and a balanced chemical equation to calculate volume of a gas at STP and non STP conditions, assuming that the reaction goes to completion and the ideal gas law holds..
Activity: Using the Ideal Gas Law To Find Moles of Gas Collected
Overview: Using the ideal gas law, the number of moles of a gas can be calculated given the volume collected.
