Would 3 balloons, each with the same number of molecules of a diferent gas at STP have the same mass or volume
Would someone please explain?

The volume would be the same, but the mass would differ as the gases have different densities.

The volume of a mole of any gas is 22.4 liters at STP. So if the balloons havae the same number of molecules and are all at STP they will havae the same volume. They will have different masses depending on which gases are present.

a similar volume yet diverse mass! by way of fact the quantity is counted by using sort of the debris/ molecules. 1co2 = 1N2 they the two will occupy a similar volume. under the STP. mass is calculated by using the load of the full sort of the atoms in that molecule. co2 (mass) 12 + 2(sixteen)=40 4 N2 (mass) 2(14)=28

No, because the mass depends the molar weight of the gas. A balloon full of He would have a mass of four grams and one full of Oxygen would have a mass of 16 grams.
